Sumi in Japan

I love doing sumi here. In the states, most people have no idea what suminagashi is, and if they do it’s usually along the lines of “Oh sure, my kid did that one day in kindergarten.” While I love that suminagashi is such an easy and accessible art form, it’s a little like telling a painter that your kid enjoys finger painting… 🙄 Here, everyone actually knows what it is! And they’re at least polite enough to comment on the difficulty involved 😂

So Excited! New chapbook out from Red Bird: Lama Mountain by Miriam Sagan

Miriam's Well: Poetry, Land Art, and Beyond

This work grew out of a residency at Herekeke last summer. Cover art by Isabel Winson-Sagan. Red Bird is a beautiful press in Minnesota–I so enjoyed working with them.
