Photo Friday: Black Bamboo

bamboo ink

Handmade ink is spooned from a bowl in Dong Ho village near Hanoi, Vietnam.

This black sludge was once bamboo growing near the village. After the artisans burn the bamboo, they soak the charcoal for a year, and only then is it ready to be made into ink. I filled a water bottle with the ink, and used it for the illustrations for my paper book which will be published next year.
