Staining Series ONE

 

Bamboo and non-violent silk, premordanted

with symplocos leaf and soy bean milk, stained with colours extracted from everyday plant materials.

 

These dye sources are, by nature, unstable.

 

With time and light, these colours will transform, toning down to a

paler shade or changing hue.
