detail of linocut on handmade paper, 2014
Made paper from cotton pulp and up-cycled papers.  Dyed wet pulp using turmeric and red pigments.  Formed sheets using deckle and mold.  Pressed wet sheets in a drying press for 4 days before printing linocut with high quality ink (Charbonnel).  Untrimmed deckled edges give paper character and highlight the handmade process.
