Purple Gray Shibori Bubble Dot ScarfRegular price $ 165.00
by Yuh Okano
Yuh Okano is a textile artist whose pieces are inspired by a deep fascination with the natural world. Her work has been exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art and is in its permanent collection. Yuh's pieces are invitingly tactile. They employ a range of color and texture that strives to be as subtle and finely detailed as the organic forms her works suggest. Their soft feel and gently flowing shapes evoke a sense of connection with plant life, flowers, and ocean creatures.
This exquisite scarf, which is part of the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art, summons memories of ocean waves and sea creatures with tentacles reaching out for nourishment. The rich colors in the center and small bubbles at the ends were inspired by the floating sea and created using traditional Japanese dyeing techniques, and the bubbles are permanently pressed into the fabric. The lightness of this scarf is like a bubble––delicate, ethereal, and begging to be touched.
