Modern Day Watermarking

$50: Edition of 100.
This one-sheet pamphlet cleverly unfolds to expose actual watermark samples. The text describes the watermarking technique that is illustrated in the center-foldout of the book. Approximate size when unfolded: 6″ x 12″ x 6″.

The Big Bang Broadside

$225, Edition of 25.
This broadside is a tribute to my father, a nuclear physicist who suffered from Alzheimer’s disease. The text alludes to my childhood memory of seeing my father in church with tears in his eyes and wondering what he was thinking about but being too shy to ask. As an adult, I occasionally experience similar bouts of emotion that seem to arise from nowhere. Pigmented cotton handmade paper, letterpress printed with hand embroidery.
These broadsides are stitched to order; please allow 4-6 weeks for delivery.

Alpha, Beta …,

$750, Limited edition of 25.

A book in the form of a unique lantern structure with a flexible hinge that allows it to be set up in a variety of ways. Each panel of the shadow lantern features an alphabet letter cutout that casts a shadow onto a second layer of handmade paper. The letters are in the Arts and Crafts style font designed by Dard Hunter, who is often referred to as the father of hand papermaking in 20th century America. The price is going up in the new year as more than half of the edition has sold.

50 Revolutions

$875, Limited edition of 35.
I turned fifty in May of 2015. Leading up to this I started thinking about a work of art to capture the milestone. I turned to a work from about five years earlier that I created. Mother Tree, a large sculptural dress that turns into a tree, as pure white crocheted threads representing mother’s milk cascade from the chest and turn into multi-colored roots as they hit the floor. These roots were crocheted and contributed by a community of five hundred.

Weave Through Winter Online Class

$145, (earlybird pricing)
Do you want to jump start your creativity in the New Year? Crave the inspiration you get from the act of making? Love beautiful papers? Have a desire to connect with others who share these same goals?
Five years ago, I created 100 weavings in 100 days, and I learned so much! I began to see paper in new ways, I learned to make without judging myself (heck, I didn’t have time to judge – I was too busy creating)! I spent an average of 30 minutes on each weaving – and to be honest, some days it was more about the process than the end result.
Weave Through Winter begins January 16, 2019. Join me as we weave our way through winter in 30 days, ending with a celebration on Valentines Day!
