Many of the papers from my studio are made as art pieces. Here are some examples.
Made of single sheets of various papers, these lanterns are lit with LED light balls. These are about 5" high, some are as tall as 12".
We Are Water
A river is created from the actual curves of the rivers of my ancestors, and of the ancestors of my spouse, up until the river we live on now. A QR code plays Patty Griffin's song "we are water", and the text is from the chorus of that song. Paper of locally collected eulalia and itadori, hung on bamboo grown in my garden. About 11" x 65"
Contributed to local arts and community organizations for fund raising, these cards are made with pulp paint on mixed local fibers. They show earth, grass, stone, river, pond, forest.
Large Paper Takes its Own Shape
A 3' x 3' piece of corn fiber paper became itself while drying.
Watching Paint Dry
A project of making botanical pigments from local invasive plants turned into a book of photographs of the pigment as it dried.
The paper wasp is the inspiration of so many papermakers. Me, too. 12"x12" mixed local paper fibers.
