Thursday Open Studio: Big Scrolls
As the weather was cooler than usual, today was a great day for making pulp. Sheryl stopped by after her Yantra Yoga class to offer her expertise. We were joined by Naomi, Kathryn from NYC and Karen. The plastic swimming pool turned out to be a perfect fit for the large silk screen donated to us by artist Dorthey Osterman. The smaller Nepalese screen belongs to Sheryl Jaffe, which she handmade using mesh curtains for the screen. A group effort, everything went smoothly from starting with making our pulp from old linen table cloths mixed with a Thai kozo and ping tang mixture, ending with draining the pulp on the mould of the excess water. Don't ask me how the laughter got recorded with the photos and sometimes sounds but we always have lots of fun making paper, for sure. The large scroll shown here was made for artist and Ursa Major Gallery owner, Lauri Marder in appreciation for all her support.
