I’m working on a new book, Playing with Paper, and am having fun writing the instructions, developing new projects, inviting a handful of guest artists, and curating the gallery. Here’s a step from one of the projects I’m contributing, a folding screen made from envelopes.
And here’s a picture of the finished project, which will certainly look much nicer in the actual book, which will be available in January 2013.
I love the folding screen with the cutouts and the visuals coming through. I believe that design is the Japanese Asa-No-Ha design for Hemp. I used it in an exhibit featuring the hemp fibre for papermaking and other artistic approaches. I think the 2nd or 3rd photo in the album at the following site will show the Asa-No-Ha: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.1761845183830.50805.1770112083&type=3&l=9d4fc1ccd5
Nice to see it on your blog. Mimi
Yes, that is the asanoha star paper! Good eyes…
