This is a corsage work by Emi Takazawa, an embroidery artist from Kiryu-city, Gunma, Japan. She uses Kiryu’s traditional embroidery technique called “yokoburi (wide-swing)” and creates each flower with silken threads.
I discovered her work at a tiny shop in modern museum in Gunma about a year ago. I was instantly attracted just by looking at it, but the story shop lady shared with me (like how much effort she made into to get this blue color) made me want more.
Graceful yet strong.
Like something you secretly picked up and brought back from the dream…
