Paper of the Week: Reminiscence Papers – Narcissus White
I’m working on designs for the 2019 Twelve Months of Paper this week. I pulled all of my decorative papers out of the flat files in order to choose the right paper for each project. Here’s a floral lantern featuring a pretty printed design from Reminiscence Papers. I must be wishing for spring, because we woke up to snow again yesterday here in the Colorado rockies!
In the Studio: New Episode on Paper Talk Featuring Mina Takahashi
Paper Talk is my monthly podcast series featuring artists and professionals who are working in the field of hand papermaking. This month I interviewed Mina Takahashi. Mina reveals how a college internship in Philadelphia planted the seed for her career in hand papermaking, she talks about a key moment when a Japanese papermaker showed her his hands and she understood what it means to dedicate yourself to a process, material and way of life, and she discusses her visit to a Thai village where they made hospital gowns out of handmade paper. We also talk about her work as an advocate and promoter for hand papermaking as an artistic medium as director of Dieu Donne Papermill and her current position as editor of Hand Papermaking Magazine. Have a listen!
