Kasure (掠れ, かすれ, lit. “crack”)

Streaks of the white surface of the paper piercing through black strokes. Kasure adds a lot of dynamism and movement to calligraphy, yet if overdone, can truly weaken its power and spiritual essence. Please also see 飛白 (fēi bái, also read as かすり (“kasuri”) in Japanese), or Flying White on our website.
