Batik Spectacular

Wednesday, April 17, 2013

If you are in the San Francisco area and can go see Batik: Spectacular Textiles of Java at the Asian Art Museum before it leaves on May 5, 2013, please do. It really is spectacular. My iphone photos, do not do them justice. 

They have a video detailing the process of making these which is fascinating. I don't think I would have the patience to be a batik artist.  Most of these were hand drawn with hot wax. 

The vibrancy and colors can't really be captured, but were stunning in person. Really amazing craftsmanship and shows such a dedication to their art. I would love to go to Java and see these artists in person.
