Silkscreen

A type of printing technique in which a screen of silk (Tetron, nylon) placed on a metal or wooden frame is used as a template and ink is extruded from the back side to print on paper or other material. Silk screen printing plates use various methods to seal the screen mesh (pores) in various ways so that ink does not pass through the area other than the pattern, and the expression differs depending on the method.

Here Studio is capable of making photo techniques that allow for more precise patterns and sharp expressions of characters.

Among them, direct method-directly apply a light-sensitive emulsion on a screen, expose a positive film (tracing paper printed on monochrome or transparent film) in contact, expose it, bake it, and develop it in water to make a plate. I mainly produce works at this method.

For art works 

It is a silk screen work produced in this studio.

We, mochi mochi of sister unit, art work.

We make texture with special film, print the pattern based on it on positive film, and make it by direct photolithographic method.

mocchi mocchi's work is silk screen printing made entirely by the equipment, tools and methods of this studio.

In addition, in silk screen printing, gold powder can be mixed with ink, sprinkled, and special ink can be used to create gloss and various expressions.

Because the size is also the largest size 1300 x 1000 mm that can be used on a printing press, large pieces can be created.

Papermaking 

A method of making works using pulp, which is a raw material for paper, and kouzo, which is a raw material for Japanese paper.

We making works by pouring  "kouzo"or pulp  which is a raw material of paper, into molds.

Pulp, "kouzo" is dyed and used as a drawing material like paints and ink. It is an expression drawn not only on paper but also with paper.

I also produce works printed on hand-made paper works produced in this way.
