Here is a sneak peek at what I’ve been working on recently: Earth Spirit Vessels.
Recently, in this case, translates to ‘roughly the past year’. And it’s been a year of ups and downs—looking for the right papers, figuring out how to finish the bottoms (wood base it turns out, which meant finding the right wood) and more. Fun, but a very involved process.
Each vessel is made from literally hundreds of folded pieces of paper. I have handwritten or calligraphed messages and quotes on many of the papers before folding them, and they will never be seen after the Earth Spirit Vessel has been made.
It’s been an adventure. I’ve also done some playing around with the folded pieces, and another time I’ll show you some of the other things I can make from them besides vessels. You’d be amazed at their versatility.
I ‘ll post more about these vessels later, but I wanted to give you all a sneak peek of what I’ve been working on when I’m not making new art to post on my blog.
