In the meantime, I'm working on a label to put in (some of) the clothes I make. The garment I am currently working on is as close as I get to wearable art. It is my first garment since taking Mary Ray's class. Her garments are as beautiful inside as out and include her trademark label. So I thought I'd work a bit on my *chop.*
A while back I took a class with June Colburn entitled "Making Your Own Chop." We were to design a chop, a Japanese signature in block form. Such a signature is seen often in Asian art. Hers was lovely of course, a wonderful stylized version of her name. Mine failed to emerge during class or even afterwards.
