Gyotaku

Gyotaku  is the ancient japanese method of recording a fisherman’s catch. this modern day art form is fun and tricky to get just right! Here I am using a flounder, with water-soluble fabric dyes that  I will print onto cotton fabric. Then my very talented framer LuAnn, will frame the image as a fine art piece.

I’ve applied a thickened dye to the fish, pressed the fabric over it, and am applying a little dye into areas that did not come thru.

The  print is pulled.

Here are some other examples I’ve done recently:

I’m very pleased to be able to say, these fish prints have been sold.
