For those of you who follow me on FB and saw this posted on Saturday, do you see the change that I made? I just couldn’t stop thinking about skyscrapers in the vertical lines and decided to add windows! This is another non-paper, which comes in a variety of colors. It is cotton viscose, which I was gifted from Shizen Design.

The weaving above is another Shizen design woven with Awagami Factory‘s asarakusui lace paper in yellow. Awagami is one of the oldest hand papermaking facilities in Japan, and in 1976, Awa Washi was designated as an Intangible Cultural Property of Tokushima Prefecture. Minoru Fujimori was also selected as Master Craftsman and awarded the medal for Technical Excellence by the Japanese Ministry of Labor.

Wallpaper anyone? This is a flocked wallpaper from the UK woven with Hook Pottery Paper’s amazing handmade moon paper. This is not a printed paper, it is made completely of paper pulp. Click the link to read the details.

I’ve made it half way through this journey of 100 days and I’m into my second half. Woo hoo!
I’ve always loved houses and used to draw them as a child. I thought I’d become an architect for the longest time, but somehow that didn’t pan out (although sometimes I refer to myself as a paper architect). When I was a teen, my father offered to pay me to chisel the mortar off of a TON of bricks that were sitting under our back deck (resulting from a home remodel – I guess he couldn’t bear to throw or give those bricks away). I think he was paying a nickel a brick, and I was enthusiastic at first, because there were likely 1,000 bricks in that pile. But the labor turned out to be incredibly tedious and s…l…o…w. I gave up after fewer than twenty. This weaving is a combination of Paper Connection International‘s Spokes on Tangerine and Hark! Handmade Paper‘s flax/linen/abaca paper.
Don’t forget that you can view all of the weavings on my website or pinterest page, and they are available for purchase!
