TEXTILE THAT IS 

NEITHER 

WOVEN NOR KNITTED

"While being conscious of the structure of the warps and wefts like weaving, it is made one by one like knitting, and the parts are assembled into one piece of cloth so that there is a space between the eyes like a basket. However, it is a cloth that is neither woven nor knitted.

       The slight distortion and uneven stacking caused by handwork, as well as the parts that deviate from the original rules set for the cloth, are the expressions and patterns of the cloth that convey the sensibilities of the creator. I suspect that something like an unconscious hand habit due to the author's personality may turn the fixed rules into own artistic sense."

「これらは織のように経と緯の組織を意識しつつも、編みのように一目ずつ作られ、また、籠のように目と目の間に空間が出来るようパーツを組み、1枚の布にしているが、織でも編みでもない布である。

手仕事によるわずかな歪みや不揃いの積み重ね、更には布に定められた独自の規則から逸脱したパーツがそのまま、作り手の感性を伝える布の表情や模様となっている。

作者の性格に起因した無意識の手癖のようなものが、規則を感覚に変えるのではないかと思う」
