Eucalyptus Sweater by Junko Okamoto // featuring AVFKW Horizon yarn

"I display dried eucalyptus flowers on the windowsill.
When dusk light is inserted into the windowsill, the eucalyptus are hidden in the shadows.
I remember playing with the shadows when I was a child.
I put vertical stripes on the entire surface of the this sweater and expressed hand drawing eucalyptus like a shadow / reverse shadow."
-- Junko
