■“Dogo no Yugure” (Dusk of Dogo)
This is a fabric flower work made by members of “Ai Support”, a Continuous Employment Support Type A Center, including Emi Yamazaki and others. The possibilities of the fabric flowers created by pure white cloth are endless. By expanding imagination, the purple gradation of Phalaenopsis orchid and Amaranthus expresses dusk in Dogo. The delicate hand-made fabric flowers and the back of even their leaves create a gorgeous image viewed from any angle of 360 degrees.
