This weaving features two papers from Graphic Products Corp/Black Ink: the Dragon Beasts paper is a handmade lokta paper (made from the fiber of the daphne plant in Nepal) which I wove with papyrus, an early substrate and technically not a true paper. True paper requires the maceration of fibers followed by sheet forming on some sort of screen. Papyrus is made by overlapping strips of the papyrus plant and pounding them so that they stick together.

The background paper here is called Granite and is a handmade flax paper made at Cave Paper in Minneapolis. I received an envelope full of papers from Susan Kristoferson who makes paste papers, itajame and other decorative papers, and I chose four different purple paste papers to integrate into this weaving. Here’s the back side, which I like too.

Here I integrated one of the same Kristopherson Studio paste papers with a screenprinted handmade paper from Shizen Design. I love how the swirls interact. And FYI, Shizen Design is a wholesaler so you can’t buy directly from them, but you can find their colorful collection of papers at Paper Mojo, Artist & Craftsman and Hollanders.

  • Helen, do you still have a link to all 100 of the weavings you did? I haven’t ready your first post but it looks as if you did 100 in 100 days? I’d love to see them all!
