Paper of the Week: Kozo Bark Fiber
When I’m in Boulder, I usually visit my friend and colleague Jill Powers, and I had the opportunity to see her this weekend. She’s got a wonderfully inspiring studio where she has developed advanced casting techniques for working with kozo (mulberry) bark. Jill teaches innovative techniques for working with this fiber in her Kozo Bark Fiber Course (technically, this isn’t really paper, but . She is currently working on an exhibition – Holdfast: Seaweeds in a Time of Oceanic Change – that will debut at the Dairy Arts Center in Boulder on March 4th. If you are in Colorado, I hope to see you there!
Here’s a lovely idea for those origami paper balloons (or water bombs) that we learned to make in elementary school from Wit & Whistle.
Here’s a nice interview with paper engineer Robert Sabuda about his new book The White House. I wonder who will be living there next?
These origami characters remind me of the gum wrapper chains I used to make as a kid (did you make those too)? I have no idea how these characters by Kerri Brooks are constructed, but she claims that it takes 1,000 pieces to create a minion. Hopefully this is a meditative process!
While I was in Boulder I visited the 15th Street Frame Shop and Gallery, a sweet little spot that I’ll visit again. They have a lovely show up now called Sculptured and 3-D Paper, and it was fun to see several 3-D lithographs by Red Grooms.
Okay, this is just too much fun. Click through to see this paper animation in motion by an artist duo in Berlin.
See you next week. Enjoy your Sunday!
