Sometimes I need to step back from quilting/crafting internet resources to consider other creative material. Here are some resources that, if nothing else, have refreshed my mind.
Wabi-sabi has become a popular term to describe (and sometimes excuse) less than perfect sewing and quilting. It is a Japanese aesthetic about the beauty of the impermanent, imperfect, and incomplete. I found a short video (4 minutes) on wabi-sabi by Cristobal Vila from Spain that’s all photography from Japan.
The textures shown in that video are echoed on Elemental Environments, a New Zealand website of photos that are all about texture. Right now the site developers are making the photos freely available. I love to browse the photos for printing and quilting ideas, and to help me see the overlooked. You can also search for specific terms, such as rocks.
