“Uroko” loosely translates from Japanese as ‘scale,’ like that of a fish or snake. The design draws inspiration from Kiyohime, a shape-shifting folk character of Japanese Noh dramas. Often depicted caught between human and dragon form, she wears a kimono bearing this pattern. Uroko plays with transmutation and proportion — subtle variations in color and shade unhinge the structured geometric pattern and give it a fluid, mercurial quality.
