White Porcelain Bowls
Barbara A. Morton.
screen-print edition of twenty-four pieces of poetic text ~ case-bound Japanese
Edition limit ~
Twenty-four. Quadrilaterals. Sit exactly upon the page. Twenty-four individual
and interweave. Curiously.
Each fascinating monochrome is emphasised by white, and white, in
turn, in this book
becomes interesting. Then, an accurate measure from each monochrome is added
to white ~ an ink
is created ~ the text is written, being born of, being part of, the image upon
which it is now
printed. Fixed. The White Porcelain Bowls are filled with symphonies of yellow.
Look closely. Look
again. Look again. Look for longer…
