Dojo Scroll for Black Belt Advancement
If you would like to order a custom scroll there are three ways to get started: 1. Go to my shopping site at www.shop.customjapanesecalligraphy.com 2. Download my scroll design workbook from my website at www.customjapanesecalligraphy.com to read about the concepts behind kakejiku or wallscroll design. 3. E-mail to me directly at email@example.com
There were several students that passed their black belt exam and went in for a gift to the Dojo. The design was done very well and the wallscroll turned out very beautiful in the Navy cloth with the Cream and Large Karakusa (arabesque) pattern for the Ichimonji. The black wood lacquer jikusaki with the Aqua/Silver fleck just seems to let it go in a pattern from lightest to lighter to darker to darkest...I was very happy with the way the scroll turned out and was pleased with the end result.
I hope the Sensei likes the time and thought that the students put into designing the scroll.
Dimensions in traditional Japanese bun measurement are as follows:
Ue Ichimonji 7.5
Honshi no Habasa 54
Honshi no Nagas 194
Shita Ichimonji 5
Total Scroll Width (About 12 Inches)
Total Scroll Length (About 49 Inches)
