Taming My Monsters: Part I

I had this idea for my new 
Monster Series:
Create large folding boxes 
that would contain
 imagery and text
and tell stories.
Cuadro II, The Red Box
These boxes would also contain my 
handmade papers.

Cuadro II drying 
When unfolded,
 the boxes would form
 complete circles. 




One side a beautiful design.
The other side a story.
Inside my handmade papers.

Learning how to use machines & tools.
Easier to imagine
than actually do.
Making the frames for handmade papers
I am learning so much about 
hard woods,
soft woods, 
drills, tools
 and instruction manuals.
Cutting pine radiata for frames
I have so much respect for
 artists & crafters
who make their final pieces look
flawless!
