"Picking Plum Blossoms" is based on a recent triptych of ceramic vessels decorated with Japanese figures. In the woodcut she has carefully chosen the distinctive grain of various woodblocks, with gold leaf and chine collé, to create rich textures and patterns. These elements, with the characteristic carved woodcut line and her lively colors, coalesce in a spring-like three-panel print.
The edition has been printed in twelve colors from eight hand-cut woodblocks on white Thai Mulberry, with Yatsuo chine collé and 22k gold leaf, in an edition of 30 plus proofs. The paper has been cut into three panels. The overall dimensions are 25¾ x 48½”.
