Simply, Enzo making is a japanese buddhist artistic practice where you draw a circle (the Enzo) in one brush stroke. An Enzo is said to reveal the true character of the artist and is a symbol that reaches across time and cultures.

Here I use the paint, ink, and dye I make from the black walnuts and grapes I harvest as an occasional artist-in-residence and apprentice herdsman at Moonstone Farm to draw and then immerse my Enzos. 

This is a small sample of the three dozen or so Enzo's currently on exhibit in the gallery at Katherine's Garden
