Mulberry Medley Talk Story, 25"x73" A textural journey of the paper mulberry or tapa cloth tree. Since only male clones were introduced to the Pacific Islands, the paper mulberry is not invasive in the Pacific. The female flower cluster is crossed out to signify that the female plants are not part of the mulberry story in Hawaii, thankfully. The abstract explores plant cell structures, bark texture, leaf shapes, and text. Cotton and silk coffee dyed, rust dyed, silk screening, soy wax resist, upholstery fabrics, machine embroidery, couching, quilting, etc.
