Clothwork Notecard Set
Japanese applique artist Ayako Miyawaki (1905-1995) found beauty in the everyday world around her. Emerging from WWII she was determined to make art. Utilizing scraps of handwoven cloth and twine from around her house, she elevated everyday objects: freshly-dug garlic, two plums, a vase of flowers, and more, into stunning textile art. These notecards feature some of her most beautiful applique works, inspired by her home and garden.
This simple yet elegant notecard and envelope set is packaged in a luxurious keepsake box with a removable bellyband, making it the perfect gift for artists or crafters. Each of the ten notecards features a unique design and a blank interior, making them the perfect greeting cards for any occasion, as well as the ideal accompaniment for any gift. The set is accompanied by an insert with an artist statement, celebrating this previously un-sung woman artist.
Set includes ten 5 x 6.325" folding cards (in 10 separate designs) with matching envelopes. Box measures approx. 5.5 x 7 x 1.75".
