Paper of the Week: One Sheet Wonders
As I proofread this issue of the blog, I’m enroute to Japan, and I invite you to follow my adventure on Instagram.
Greeting card by Mario Armengol made from one sheet, in my collection, probably purchased at MoMA in the 80’s.
Writing a book is quite an undertaking. It is daunting and thrilling at the same time, and I feel so lucky to have a publisher (Storey Books) for my new book featuring things you can create from one sheet of paper. My deadline is early April, and the book – barring delays –will be released in 2021.
I need you (again)!
I am curating a gallery section in the book to show off the potential of paper (featuring artwork, graphic design, fashion design and other wonders created from one sheet
of handmade or machine-made paper). Fill out this form if you have something to share
, and feel free to pass it along to other paper artists (deadline: 1/15/20). Although I can’t promise that your image will make the cut (there are so many factors involved), I’d like to start showing off a variety of One-Sheet-Wonders
on the blog, leading up to the book’s publication.
(designer of the card above) was fascinated by the infinite possibilities of paper sculpture (a kindred spirit!) – using one sheet of paper to create a 3-D animal, bird or human face. I purchased this elephant card in the 1980’s. Read more about the artist and view more one sheet wonders here.
In the Studio:
I’m excited to run the second annual Weave Through Winter online class again, starting January 16th and ending on Valentine’s Day. I’m going to add a new element this time – since this is a 30-day class, there will be 30 prompts. Above you see my response to a prompt to “weave two papers together that you would never consider pairing”. I took a map and wove a piece of striped batik lokta paper into it. Intrigued? Read more and sign the ‘first to find out more’ list. Registration opens very soon!
