turmeric dyed kozo

i've been playing with dye made from turmeric root.
the studio smells like turmeric.
in alkali water it turns pink, in acidic yellow.

when you have a pot of dye around it's tempting to dye everything.

and actually i don't even really know why this piece has some really pink areas but isn't completely pink. it happened by accident.
