In order to find some leaves for my project of ethnic costume with Heritage Museum, I gathered some plants for the fabric prints. The fisherman costume made with plants prints and indigo designed with modern touch.
Sneak peek of a series of ethnic costume I made
. Green from indigo and turmeric, leaves prints from eucalyptus.
I still wanted to do a few more of the series, these days I went with a bike along the coastal to pick some windfalls........
I enjoy being alone for biking. Stop to pick some windfalls and admire the views whenever I like.
Our undulating mountains are stunning. Weekdays are quiet and less traffic.
It's a cloudy day in the morning.
Unfortunately in the afternoon it's pouring. I couldn't make my way back and have to hire a van back to the bike station.
Recently I joined a team riding on Saturdays. A dynamic team mostly riding in the New Territories.
We're a team not only for the physical exercise but also a cultural riding. We passed by the fields and twisted roads.
Visited the indigenous villages
The well conserved temple
Alley with sculptured wall art
Viewed the ancient houses of indigenous
It stands still as it's hundred years ago
The oldest pawn in the area
In the mid of our 40+ km riding
The team is well equipped. Even got a flat tire they can fix it immediately
I like to follow the team as they well care each other
While the team was fixing the tyre I got some plants on the road side. A "hat-full" leaves for my experiments.
Almost every time after biking I got some plants. These were edible from Estella. Prints with technique learnt from Irit Dulman. Detail of the prints already made into garment.
Shortly a series of different ethnic costume will be shown. Stay tuned.
