Burning Shibori

Burning more holes Itajime style.
This is rice paper still a bit damp and see through from putting out the flames. I stitched it to a base of some handmade paper I've had sitting around for years.

I apologize for the crappy photos I seem to post more often than not. I generally seem to take photos at night and lighting is a definite problem, also my camera leaves a bit to be desired... and my photo skills are meh.

Well you get the idea...

I love the way the burnt holes are shaped by the folds...
