Do you remember the lovely vegetable prints by Rigel Stuhmiller that we featured here a few years ago? The prints were created as a fundraiser for Japan with their sale contributing towards disaster relief. The prints were handprinted works of art and many people purchased them to hang on their kitchen walls. But there's another way you can enjoy these beautiful, striking images: as dishtowels!
Perhaps you don't have the budget or wall space to hang art in your kitchen, or maybe you are just nervous about choosing and committing to a particular image. That shouldn't stop you from being able to enjoy attractive works of art while rustling up some dinner. Purchasing a simple, everyday tea towel is a fun, economical way to bring art into your kitchen.
The image above is of tatsoi, but at $10 each, why not splurge on all four of the images from the series which includes Japanese turnips, Napa cabbage, and long beans. And if you would like to take them to the market, she has printed the same images on small totes, 6 for $20.
If the black and white images don't quite fit your decor, Ms Stuhmiller also has colored images of chickens and other vegetables as well. You can find all of these, as well as more artwork and note cards, in her Etsy shop.
