Studio Visit: Screenprinter PataPri

I visited my friend and textile/printing artist “PataPri”. Her studio is by the sea in Akiya, Yokosuka, Japan, and you could get all the great ocean view from the room she works at.

I regretted that I didn’t take more pictures but her mid-century modern inspired interior decoration and the collection of fabulous handmade items from all over the world entertain me every time I visit her.

And since it was during the annual Hayama Art Festival, which PataPri takes part in, I and my another friend, enjoyed the open studio and printing workshop.

Looking for Mr. Red

These pictures are from when I was looking for the right “Red” for one of my customers. But I have been so lazy recently, if I’m allowed to make any excuse, because it’s boiling hot in this studio… maybe Japan is becoming a tropical island… what should I do. I cannot survive.

Something in Common

After the owner of Etsy shop Vitamini sent me a note to say hi, as a fellow screenprinter, I was delighted to browse her lovely shop!
(As some of you might know, I drive the old classic Mini, too)

 

 




You can find the lovely Mini Coopers on a variety of items!
In such a stylish way!
Also, check her fantastic blog (with all the nice retro stuff, too) here.
Thank you Casey for sharing your talent and love for MINI!! :)

Which One Is Your Colour?


I finally listed the new Frog cushion covers on Etsy. And this time I added the colour samples on the listings for custom order, because I thought it might be easier for people to find what they want instead of me saying “I can print almost any colour of your choice” without samples.
