Silent Auction Title The Great Wave off Macaroni I and II
Alt. Silent Auction Title(s) --
Silent Auction Donator(s) Diana "Kiwijelly" McKenzie
Silent Auction Description Two renderings after the famous print Kanagawa oki nami ura, (Under the Wave off Kanagawa) also known as The Great Wave, from Hokusai's series Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji

These 'Pasta-pieces' were inspired by an improv segment by Canadian comedy group Loading Ready Run. After observing the segment, the artist wondered what the results of a serious approach would look like, and decided to find out. Hokusai's The Great Wave came immediately to the artist's mind because of its iconic status, distinctive curling wave crests and relatively simple color palate.

Inscription: キウイ浪浪 [多国籍料理] Kiwiroro [Takokusekiryōri]

Kiwiroro can be roughly translated as "Wondering Wave, Kiwi" or "Endless Kiwi" or "Unemployed Kiwi", and is the name the artist has adoped for this series which she hopes to continue in the future.

Takokusekiryōri translates as Fusion Cuisine.

Craft-Along? Yep!
