Let’s talk about something other than weavings for a moment! I’ve spent the week getting ready to launch a new product, the Shadow Lantern KIt. This is one of the first projects I designed for my book Paper Illuminated (and the lantern is versatile, unfolding to become a screen, as you see above). I’m excited to share the kits with you. Here’s a sneak peak of the three designs that I willl be rolling out early next week.

I am flattered by the generosity of the paper donors for this project. Shizen Design sent me a box full of at least 100 papers. Not big sheets, but small 4″ x 10″ pieces that are easy to integrate into weavings! I decided to cut strips of six of their silkscreened designs.

This is a Thai soft metallic momigami from Graphic Products Corporation/Black Ink. I love the bronze metallic color (the paper is brushed with acrylic paint) contrasting with the black pigmented kozo/mulberry paper. The name Momigami means crumpled (momi) paper (gami) in Japanese, where this papermaking technique originated. I wove this with strips of Hiromi Paper’s Red Cedar, a paper-thin wood veneer. This is what it looks like as a sheet:

This is a double-sided weaving, featuring papers from, ack! I can’t figure it out. I thought they were Shizen Designs, but alas, I cannot find them in the catalog. I think I picked them up at Two Hands Paperie.
