Neutral Sublimation Print

Here is the latest print I have been working on. This time, it's my design. I put a ruler in the picture to give some scale to the image. I like the neutral color palette. I plan to do this same print with two other color schemes. Hope you like it!

Jen Kao Purple Print

Here's the second print I did for Jen Kao's Spring/Summer 09 Collection, see below for first print. This one was a lot of fun to work on too. I really liked the colors in this one, especially how the purples and turquoises went together in her print pattern. The print she gave me to work with fragmented quite beautifully. I will be sure to post final pieces made from these fabrics once I have images from her fashion show.

Jen Kao Multicolor Print

I recently did this print for Jen Kao, a fashion designer in New York City (see Sites I Like for her website). The fashion show for her Spring/Summer 09 Collection was Sept. 12th so now I can post my work. This is a technique I've been working on and I was so excited to get to use it for her! She sent me her print pattern and I worked with it and adapted it to my technique and voila! Hope you like it!

Brown "Al Verso" Scarf

Brown satin bomaki with brown velvet on the reverse. This one is over 7 feet long, more than long enough to wrap around you and have some left to show off. Plus it was fun to make!

Pink and Yellow Silk Bomaki

Variegated pink and yellow silk bomaki. I am really very pleased with the way this one came out. It's nice and bright in person. I used a 10 momme silk for it, it would be just as nice with an 8 momme as well, lighter weight too.

Black Velvet Bomaki Scarf

Black velvet scarf with black satin bomaki tips. It is about 9 feet long, perfect for wrapping up in. Feels wonderful and soft too. I plan on making more out of some of my other bomakis. Keep posted!
