first steps in Paper Making!

A weekend workshop got me hooked! The teaching and demonstration of the craft resulted in a number of very straight forward examples, and the vertical growth of my enchantment with the craft!
The results of my embryonic steps  are in these photographs. Too bad I cannot share the feel and the variety of crackling each paper does when handled, directly depending of the pulp source used in its making.

from Alice's Wonder Garden!

A selection of works  from "Alice's wondergarden", a new body of works in progress, where I am  illustrating the effort to decipher family secrets in order to pass on truths to future generations.
