Textile book 3


This third book is based on the Japanese concept of Wabi Sabi. This is the art of finding beauty in imperfection.  The word wabi can mean humble by choice, sabi, the appreciation of rustiness.  However, it is said that if you ask a Japanese the meaning of the words, they cannot translate them, which leads me to wonder if they have something of the spirit of “duende’ about them – something heart and soul felt, but intangible.  This book takes the circle as its inspiration.  I also found somewhere the idea of a circle becoming a square, which I have incorporated into the pages.
