I spent the weekend with a group of papermakers including Paul Wong and Sue Gosin from Dieu Donné Papermill in NYC. What a treat! I learned a lot of what I know about handmade paper from Paul during the six years that I worked there. And Sue founded this unique studio in 1976, when hand papermaking was just becoming an art form. I’m so grateful to the two of them for planting the seed that made my career possible!
Paul is giving a lecture here in Portland tomorrow night. I’m looking forward to hearing him talk about his work and the numerous artistic collaborations he has conducted during his 35 years at Dieu Donné.
