Images Artist Made Paper Gallery

Materials: Artist made kozo paper, petioles from the Tree of Heaven and sometimes, driftwood.


Process:  Petioles, (the part of the tree that holds the leaf), are gathered in the fall from the Tree of Heaven.  Wrapped and secured to a form, they are left to dry for several months.  Artist made kozo paper is then wet-cast onto the form on and around the petioles.  When the paper is dry, the structure is removed from the form resulting in a free standing sculpture.
