handpainted silk using the Serti technique


Description of Serti Silk Painted Kimono ~ Open to the Light

Silk charmeuse takes the silk dyes beautifully. This kimono, I also used the serti technique, and let a lot of the color of the material come through.

Gorgeous lotus blossoms are painted on both sides of the kimono. The blossoms on the front are closed, and on the back the blossoms are open.

We may enter situations with our hearts closed, but hopefully we will leave an experience with our hearts opened even more.

Currently all my openings for Kimono commissions are filled until the Fall of 2021. If you would like a Kimono created especially for you in the future, you can always e-mail me. Please click here to be transferred to my contact page.
