In The Studio: Jocelyn Chateauvert on Paper Talk
Jocelyn Chateauvert is a paper artist in South Carolina who manipulates abaca and flax in astounding ways. She discovered hand papermaking while getting an MFA in metals and jewelry at the University of Iowa. We talk about how she started out combining paper and metal, two seemingly disparate materials. Jocelyn then tells me how her work has evolved from jewelry and body adornment, to sculpture, installation, and lighting, and how she has come up with a vocabulary for the more than 50 unique techniques she has developed for manipulating paper. Enjoy our conversation!
- Would you be interested in a holiday gift-making online class? This would take place early this fall and would focus on simple paper projects that have been featured in past Twelve Months of Paper calendars. I’m contemplating this – e-mail me if you’re interested.
- Join me on August 26th at 6pm for my lecture at Indiana University – Purdue University at Indianapolis (IUPUI), 735 West New York Street at the Herron School of Art & Design at 6pm in the Herron Auditorium. A selection of my artist’s books will also be exhibited in the library.
