Final Netsukes

After skating the wheels, I work into them more.I wanted to use the same traditional Japanese artwork on my Netsukes. I researched  Japanese seasonal colours. I chose the colours of the four seasons, e.g. Red and white wheel was winter, using the white as snow. Beneath the paint I drew a Bonsai tree, wrapping around the wheels, this was to maintain the style of traditional woodblock prints in the 1900’s.
