I believe that stitching is praying.
Once upon time in Japan, there were customs associated to stitching such as “Senninbari” and
“Semamori”. Both were amulets hand-stitched by women with threaded needle as an action of their prayers that “Senninbari” protects men from hazards of battles and “Semamori” brings good luck
for babies’ growth. Women prayed along the each in-and-out movement of a threaded needle
made on cloth as if their wishes were sewed.
I’d like my creative work to be simple prayers as well.
I often am touched by the beauty of animals and plants’ lives and that’s the time when I feel
the messages from Mother Nature.
A tree as an example. It vigorously roots into the earth and freely stretches out its branches and
leaves to the sky. As a vital element of all the creatures breathed life into, a tree ponders, observes and accepts something beyond my imagination in a fixed place.
It shows us—human beings an example of how to live life, I believe.
I continuously will be engaged in my embroidery artworks by listening carefully to those messages and make simple prayers as I work on each in-and-out movement of a threaded needle on cloth.
