handiworks.

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.

    hi golriz, i have followed your blog for several months now and constantly find inspiration in all that you do and more importantly in the light that you see in the world. your letters to nori make me cry every time i read them :) thank you for being so open with your personal experience.
    you mentioned nori’s crib in this piece and i wondered how you are decorating her little nest? with all your creativity and love for color, i just wondered. i can understand if it is too tangibly intimate to share, but i am sure everyone will be breath-takingly inspired.
