I’m hosting a rafflecopter giveaway and invite you to join in on the fun! One lucky winner will receive an envelope full of incredible paper pieces that I’ve accumulated over the course of 100 x 100 Paper Weavings. This photo shows only a small portion of the prize… take a look through all of the weavings to date to get a glimpse of some of the unique papers you will receive.
This is a portion of another van dyke print by Alyssa Salomon on my abaca woven with Hiromi Paper’s brazilian banana paper in red. I love the crispness and translucency of this paper, which is most certainly related to abaca and shares its characteristics.
Japan meets Korea. I highly recommend that you whet your paper appetite by looking at the selection of Yuzen Papers (incredibly rich and imaginative printed papers) that Paper Connection International imports from Japan. This one is called Grey Wheels and I purchased a sheet of it very early in my career and was happy to see it again! In 2011, I had the pleasure of visiting Jang Ji Bang, a traditional Korean Papermill located near Seoul, South Korea. I was gifted a huge sheet of hanji paper and used a small piece of it for this weaving.
Here is a short video of me attempting to make a sheet of paper at Jang Ji Bang.
And if you can’t see that for some reason, here is a link.
This is a gorgeous marbled paper by Tom Leech of Santa Fe, NM paired and woven with a handmade sheet from the Morgan Art of Papermaking Conservatory.
I absolutely adore this printed paper that I purchased at Wet Paint in St. Paul, Minnesota. I could stare at it for hours, as it is quite complex (did you notice that the print is woven?). I wove it with a sheet of Hark! Handmade Paper. These durable papers are externally coated with saturated color, a patina of walnut dye, and finally a heavy coat of gelatin size. Yummy!
That’s all for now folks. Don’t forget to enter the rafflecopter giveaway!
