This year Warren asked if I was going to do eggs and I said, "no, I am putting all my creative energy into current pots." But this morning, after I made breakfast, I thought, "Oh it's Easter and I have to do something to mark the holiday." I looked up a recipe I had read about using red cabbage as a natural egg dye and boiled a few eggs.
I was struck by was how I am both a process person and a product person. Today I enjoyed the process of cutting red cabbage with its pattern and intense color. I was entranced by the color that it produced as a dye.
Painting egg shells with sumi-e ink is something that would also take practice to make interesting. It was fun for a few minutes and if I gave it lots of time and attention I could turn it into something more, but all this is to say... Happy Spring.
