Fibers and Found Objects
I started making hand made paper from my less- than-stellar watercolor paintings. I learned that I could tear them up, put them in a blender, and turn them into something beautiful for your home.
I also incorporate other fibers that can be used to make hand-made paper. Kozo is a bark from the mulberry tree found in Japan or Thailand. The bark must be cooked to remove the impurities before it can be transformed. Abaca comes from a banana plant that grows in the Philippines. I also use gifts from my garden in these pieces.
Many people use my pieces as Blessing Vessels. Write your blessings on a piece of paper, roll it up, and place it in the vessel. Some people do this all year long and read the blessings on a special occasions such as New Year's, birthdays, or anniversaries.
You can find me at local craft shows selling these unique pieces. Please contact me at 954 532 0017 for further information and pricing.
