My contribution for the 2016 SAQA Benefit Auction started out as one of a collection of photos of tea sets I took on my last trip to Japan. I love the elegance and simplicity of the shapes.
Here is my original photo which I converted to black and white as I knew I wanted to make a thermofax screen from it.
I then played around in Photoshop and a few drawing programs to convert the image to a better line drawing
Here are some of the versions. The final one is in the bottom right hand corner. For a thermofax screen you need a sharp positive image
teach it a lot and always add my own fabric to the vat when I can too.
I was a bit stumped for a background quilting design until I found some quilting stencils in my studio which I've had forever and there were some Japanese design ones. I knew they would come in handy one day.
