Out of the Studio:
I’m in Northern Iowa for a couple of days, teaching a plant fiber papermaking workshop in Spirit Lake. It has been fun seeing all of the fields of corn (and making corn husk paper). I’m heading to Minneapolis for a couple of days next to visit with paper friends and record a couple of podcasts. Speaking of podcasts, there’s a new one up with Andrea Peterson. Listen to it here and check out this short video tour of her studio.


This is a lovely profile of the artist Sun Young Kang, whom I’ve showed with and met. I love how the writer captures the essence and depth of her work, the reality of her life as an artist (working two jobs in addition to her artwork, being a wife and a mother) and staying true to herself which is summed up in the last line: “It certainly would be easier if she pursued something more commercial, but don’t count on it. “This is my art and my truth,” Kang says.”
My foray into paper art began decades ago when I took a paper class at the University of Mainz in Germany during my junior year of college. One of our assignments was to make a piece of furniture out of cardboard. Check out these amazing cardboard pieces made by Karton (sorry, available only in Australia), Chairigami, SmartDeco and Flatgoods.
I’d love to hop over to Hanoi to experience the exhibition Truc chi – Listen to the River by artist Phan Hai Bang. Inspired by the words of Heraclitus: “No man ever steps in the same river twice, for it’s not the same river and he’s not the same man,” the exhibition features 10 artworks called “Raincoats” and a 100m-long river created of paintings on bamboo paper, in which ordinary stories in the lives of Vietnamese people are told. The works are combined with light, music and video installations.
I don’t think we’ll ever get tired of new innovations with origami. Canadian entrepreneur Tony Luna doesn’t claim to have the solution to worsening air quality, but he has come up with a way to make air-filtering face masks more attractive – even fashionable, while at the same time drawing people’s attention to the pollution issue.
Check out this giant paper boat that German artist Frank Bôlter created and set sail in recently in Ireland.
