Since Kurenai-kai was set up by the late Master Saito many beautiful designs have been designed and developed by him and successive generations of the artists and designers at the centre. I am lucky enough to have a number of the books they have published and spend many hours just looking at all the beautiful pictures. However, no matter how good the photograph nothing can quite capture the beauty of the metallic and silk threads as seen in real life. Shokko Flower is a piece I've only ever seen in books until Wendy brought her version with her to class a couple of weeks ago. While not as big as Flower Cart this is another stunning piece of work from one of our very talented embroiderers. Thank you Wendy for allowing me to share with with you all.
