one more for the tea field art contest
Remember the Fantasies in the Tea Field Photo & Art Contest that I blogged about last week? I ended up doing just one more piece before sending them off yesterday. This one shows two large baskets such as the tea-pickers traditionally carry on their backs when they go out to the fields to pick tea leaves. The baskets are woven from strips of bamboo. And the shoulder straps are woven from leftover strips of often colorful fabric.

beautiful work. I love combinations of sepia-colors and ink.ReplyDelete
I sure am missing green tea. I need to get over to the Japanese market here where I live.
It's amazing how wonderfully you can paint baskets!ReplyDelete
Wow! Those are the best placed blobs in blogland. CaroleReplyDelete
Thanks, Ladies. Carole, you mean the ink blotches? You do know, of course, that they are accidental. Blotches come with using the bamboo quill pen, and I couldn't orchestrate it if I tried.ReplyDelete
Ohh, so pretty! Best luck with the contest m'dear. :)ReplyDelete
