Wind Driven Rain

I've read that arashi is the Japanese word for "wind driven rain," or "storm." Both of those descriptions are apt for the effects on fabric created by the process. These photos are from my very first go at arashi shibori.


I really loved this process. I also appreciated that I could start with a piece that didn't turn out well at all, overdye it, then do arashi on it, and get something I love. If that isn't transformation, I don't know what is.

I love the way the patterns look so natural, like animal skins.

Thanks Taueret! The work of my own that I like the best inevitably looks like animal skins!
