Kristine worked patiently with us to create the perfect design for this beautiful silk scarf. The design is drawn onto each scarf, then painted with the 10 colors, dried, steamed, cooled down, and then finally hand washed and hung to dry. The Arts and Crafts Movement is all about individual art and doing hand work, so we love that this scarf really embodies that process.
In 1996, Yoshiko founded with her
husband, Bruce Smith, The Arts & Crafts Press in Berkeley, teaching herself (with the help of
wonderful mentors) the craft of letterpress printing. For her limited edition
prints, Yoshiko first sketches, and after multiple drawings and water colors,
she begins cutting blocks. Sometimes she works with wood blocks, usually
cherry, and other times she chooses linoleum. Yoshiko takes the blocks and
prints each color separately on a Vandercook printing press, using as many as
twenty blocks per print to achieve the desired effect. Yoshiko now resides in a
small coastal town of Washington
with Bruce and their children.
This print was created from sketches Yoshiko did while visiting The Gamble House in 2007.
The Bookstore is happy to be carrying this exclusive design by Susan Hebert of Cobre. The lapel pin and pendant are intricately cut-out to resemble the famous Gamble House door and are both in sterling silver.
