Shiwa Shiwa (Wrinkle Wrinkle)

Shiwa shiwa means wrinkle wrinkle in Japanese.  My unique printmaking process was developed by experimenting with a traditional Japanese resist dye technique called shibori.  Paper is tightly wrapped around a pole and then the paper is compressed from top to bottom on the pole and pleated.  The pleats act as a resist when pleats stay pleated or are opened; as a result, striations, unique linear marks, are created in the paper.
