Out of the Studio:
I was in NYC this week for a couple of days and stumbled across this lovely paper weaving by Gertrud Goldschmidt at MOMA! It’s tiny – just 5″ x 7″ or so.

Papery Tidbits:

  • The Paper Weaving online class begins soon! Join a growing international group of paper lovers and register today if you would like to receive the supply kit before class begins.
  • Prefer to work with me in person? The annual Red Cliff Paper Retreat is also open for registration and this year’s theme is illuminated paper. This is the only event I hold in my Colorado studio. Join us Sept 7-9 and/or Sept 11-13.


Wowza! Yamandu Ploskonka is producing a new textured handmade paper. Cinque Tooth is Papel Texano’s specialty finish that imitates the surface of Renaissance paper. The deep grooves of Cinquecento paper are ideal for charcoal, chalk and sanguine artists. Pastels were invented during the Renaissance as the perfect medium to take full advantage of the distinctive surface of the paper. Made by hand with 21st century methods in Austin, Texas, this very classic surface on handmade paper is again available to artists and everyone! If you happen to be in Austin TODAY, you can visit Yama at the Austin 2018 Book, Paper & Photo Show. Or, read more about this paper and order some online today!

Imagine being able to walk through rows of floor-to-ceiling colored paper numbers that range from 0 to 9. Each row of numbers denotes a time of day, from sunrise to sunset. As you move, the cut-outs gradually change in color from vibrant rainbow hues to darker shades, and eventually black, visualizing the passing of time from day into night. Tokyo-based architect and designer Emmanuelle Moureaux’s Color of Time installation was recently at Toyama Prefectural Museum of Art and Design in Toyama, Japan.

Carve out some time for this documentary about the reconstruction as well as the tale of the Montgolfier brothers’ first hot air balloon in France.
