Min Chiu and Sharon Wang

Cathayana

"My teacher of colors is nature. My job is to present the beautiful colors of nature through my artwork."

By carefully calculating the balance of different dyes, Min Chiu uses the shibori technique to express her inspirations from nature. Oftentimes, the final piece exceeds all expectations with its remarkable beauty. That is why Min fell in love with the shibori technique. Together with her sister-in-law, Xiaoke Wang, Min creates unlimited possibilities that replicate nature.

Each silk shawl or scarf is hand dyed, pleated, optionally discharged, and painted one at a time.

Min Chiu has always been a disciplined learner. By spending a tremendous about of time reading and viewing English and Japanese books on shibori, along with countless trial and error, she became a talented shibori artist. She is also very grateful for the direction and support provided by artists Karren K. Brito and Carter Smith.
