Yamato Hyougu (Tea Ceremony Scroll)

The following scroll was not written by my wife. It was provided to me by the customer. It is very beautiful calligraphy. In selecting the cloths rather than what was written, I focused on the feeling of the writing.

For the Ichimonji I used a gold with orange brown background. The Chuumawashi (intermediate cloth) is a pure silk with a phoenix and chrysanthemum style pattern. The Ten/Chi (top and bottom) cloths are a light beige.

The Sage (Japanese term and not color) Fuutai are the same as the ichimonji cloth.

The scroll is completed with a Dark Gold Kakehimo and a Rosewood jikusaki.
