Obsessed with Japanese Stab Bindings

Japanese Stab Binding Obsession

I had no plan to do another stab binding today but look what happened.  It all came together pretty quickly.  I accessed a sheet of designer papers and after I cut out the size I needed I looked on my work station and there was a piece of designer paper with Japanese calligraphy on it.  A little black binding thread and some time and look what transpired.

I also worked on four new clamshell boxes today and some encaustic work.  Kind of tired and so I am looking through art books for more ideas.  Nice day! :-)

Isn’t it funny how the most thrilling work sometimes comes out of an entirely unplanned session? This is gorgeous!
Sounds like you had a really nice day of work, john.
