URUSHI

  • There are always new horizons to explore. Both in technique and media. When experimenting with all kind of additional substances that can be used with japanese sumi I stumbled upon urushi, lacquers and shellacs. The way they react with calligraphy ink is beyond compare. All those dendritic structures, branches, waves and more are something that fascinates me. Completely unpredictable, unrepeatable, in one word a big yess for my future work.
