SASHIKO REFLECTIONS - A series of etched mirrors inspired by Japanese stitching -

About

Sashiko meaning “little stab” is a traditional stitching technique originating from Northern Japan. The practise evolved as a domestic rural craft during the Edo era in a time of peace.
Using undyed thread on dark indigo cloth, the patterns often represent Buddhist motifs and “protections symbols” whilst also having the functional task of strengthening clothes.

Jakob Kaye is an artist based in Scotland using hand etching methods on mirrors to depict his chosen subject matters for each series.
Often drawn towards natural geometry and cultural history as themes, jakob is applying the fine hand-skill and focus required for the needlework within the traditional Sashiko art form in an alternative medium.
