Washi Art by TOMOMI

My Washi art is prepared by hand-made Japanese paper called Washi which have unique fibers and characteristic textures. I tear them into pieces using fingers to make fuzzy-outlines which naturally creates delicate and gracefull expressions, completing my work on paper without any oil or color paints at all.

WASHI

The traditional craft of hand-making paper, or Washi, is practiced in three communities in Japan: Misumi-cho in Hamada City, Shimane Prefecture, Mino City in Gifu Prefecture and Ogawa Town/Higashi-chichibu Village in Saitama Prefecture. The paper is made from the fibres of the paper mulberry plant, which are soaked in clear river water, thickened, and then filtered through a bamboo screen. Washi paper is used not only for letter writing and books, but also in home interiors to make paper screens, room dividers and sliding doors.
