From Tami Wedekind


Recently discovered Hand Eye magazine and within the Summer issue – discovered Rowland Ricketts.  He practices the traditional Japanese craft of indigo-dyeing, and he grows the indigo from seed to plant.  His modern noren (a Japanese cloth room divider) are simple traditional rectangles that divide the space yet the darker the indigo color the more transparent and connecting.  See this good interview about Rowland on ashes and milk blog with great photos by Michelle Geoga.
