This artwork was inspired by Japanese Katagami. Katagami are mulberry paper stencils, which have been laminated with the glue of persimmon juice, and then the design drawn on and carefully cut out.

The intricate and delicate stencils are used in the dying of cloth - often for kimono. Nowadays Katagami stencils have become recognised as artworks in themselves.

‘White Peppermint in Bud’ references Katagami in portraying the original pattern and its resultant image.

“White Peppermint in bud - slow the inevitability of Time.”
