Cata Espina

Batik artist in Chile

Three qualities of Batik that conquered me:

  • Batik is an unpredictable art. The effects that result from the sum of many colour baths and the application of the layers of wax never stop amazing me. The richness of textures and crackles are a surprise when the finished work is unwaxed.

  • In batik there are no mistakes, since there is always the possibility of making what could be a mistake part of the design.

  • The smell of wax in my studio.

 

BATIK + NATURAL DYES. 

Since I discovered the world of natural dyes, I decided to join and contribute a small grain of sand by generating a more sustainable art. Although combining both techniques has been a real challenge in terms of complexity, every day I am surprised and I love it more and more. 

I have been a member of the Batik Guild collective since 2015.
