Text

Good taste in art - select the right thing for the right place.

Ornamentation exists for itself.

Decoration exists for the thing it is on & it must be consistent with that which it decorates. (texture & color; structure;) (crying need rightful use unhampered)
Choose appropriate materials & design—
1. large, bold design unsuited to fine, delicate stitchery.
2. “natural flowers” in silks unsuccessful
3. should be conventionalized—
characteristic of Japanese art- conventional-
leave so much unsaid- imagination.
