*First Time to see hand-weaving and a loom *
Saori-ori is a free style of hand-weaving which was founded in 1968 by "Jo Misao".
One of my city's department store is holding (until 25th) an exhibition and sale of "SAORI-ori". The "SA" of SAORI is the first syllable of the word of "sai・差異" and the "ori" means weaving. The two Chinese characters "差異" have almost the same meaning of "difference". The concept is everything has its own dignity; free style without restriction. I really was happy to have a chance to see this weaving style.
|I hope you will enjoy beautiful works.|
The lady kindly allowed me to take video of how the saori-loom is used.
The picture below is one of her works displayed at the entrance.
Title of this work is "cherry blossom at night from Ichinosaka-river"
*For flower link*
The first arrangement was displayed at the city office when we went there to inquire about the income tax for next year (my late parents' house having been sold).
Second one from early this month at the nearby park. Name unidentified p:-)
*For the critter and the bird link *
Black-faced bunting I found on the roadside to the nearby park.
Not so clear pictures, two of them flew away before I take better ones :-)
But I was happy to find this rare birdie for me♪
I really AM so sorry that I haven't been able to visit any friend!!!
