I am interested in using natural sealants in my work as well. Can you tell me what you use?
Peter Gorse

Kim Print

The slow maple basting where you kind of take your time and enjoy the process is just great. It is similar to when I am sticking - taking time to enjoy the sense of time. What a lovely talk, thank you Yasuna
Anita Fleming
01:05:01
Lovely artwork and presentation
Kim Print
01:05:30
Oops - I meant STITCHING not sticking!!!
Cheryl Desjardin
01:05:33
Thank you Yasuna for sharing your incredible art and process - love the idea of not using the term “time-consuming” and the idea of slowing down to enjoy and feel the process. We are fortunate when we’re able to create. I’m refreshed and inspired. Grateful! Thanks Kathy and Amy.

Thank you for your lovely presentation! Beautiful fascinating work! Is there one type of maple tree that you've worked with ( or different ones)?
Lisa Milliman
01:08:49
Thank you for your thoughts about the concept of "time consuming" activities being a sort of moving meditation that is not wasting "time" at all. Very thought provoking! I am inspired by your presentation and came up with a numbers of ideas for my own work.
Angela Adams
01:09:00
Amen to that!
Michelle Sonnenfeldt
01:09:27
