By Yukiko Yokoyama
All of Yokoyama’s textiles have a wonderful warp that comes from combing multiple techniques. She took a lot of time and effort to make one specific textile art. From choosing the material, dyeing yarn one by one, and weaving the cloth. However, there is a deep sense of satisfaction to get unique color from the dyeing. She is making works that radiate a sense of calmness with lively expression.
Yukiko Yokoyama founded Yumeoribito, dye and weave studio, in 1977. Since then she has been creating her own textiles for more than 40 years. She has held numerous solo exhibitions in Japan and the US.
