A sunflower in Shizuoka

At Kaori Shina and Riccardo Nardi’s suggestion I have realised and exhibited my first cotton sunflower dyed with green tea leaves from Shizuoka, a Japanese city at the foot of Mount Fuji. Kyoichiro Washizu, by using simple green tea leaves boiled inside big cauldrons, has enabled the creation of this work of mine, transforming it into a tapestry. A special piece in limited edition belonging to the new collection, Hands on Design.
