my desire to create stuff with my hands has developed quite an incessant voice in my head lately. it might be because such a majority of the work i do is interfacing with this screen and with oh.so.many words and images that never become tangible hold-in-your-hand objects. or maybe it’s part of the nesting drive and i just want to occupy my senses with color and fabrics and paint and tactile things i can touch and feel. but nevertheless, the voice is there. which is why i think i’ve been so drawn to other people’s handiworks lately.
today i spied takashii wasaki’s beautiful embroidery. my mum also has a knack for all things created by hand and wasaki’s work reminded me of being a kid and watching my mum focused on her task of creating beautiful objects. i would love to carve out space in my day and create an embroidery piece inspired by wasaki’s work to hang above nori’s crib.
