I love the illusive Bamboo Chrysanthemum plant. Found one at Liggett Studio paper making/sculpting lab. Dewey was a big help helping construct and hang though one chrysanthemum is now confetti. Didn't realize the plant has to live hanging from the ceiling if a kitty lives in your home, now I understand why. Dewey is already working on the next paper project. It will probably hang out of reach also.
Along with the other 3 Musketeers, we took a paper making lab with Steve Liggett at Liggett Studio. I'd taken some paper making classes through the years, but this one was really interesting. Steve had a curly piece of paper he'd made, sculpted and showed us so when he offered a paper making/sculpture lab during the summer I jumped at the chance and Catherine stepped up to be my partner.
Dreams are big and there's always more to the process than you realize, but this has been an experience.
Here's the steps for the first piece of paper I embedded with fishing net and other scraps I picked up on the beaches of several Greek Islands. Can't seem to help myself from "procuring" found objects big and small., in the US and overseas. I'm going to make this into a chandelier, with more curly pieces. Yes always and forever enchanted with chandeliers. More curly pieces to be posted (and procured stuff).
Someone said I was delusional. I nearly fell off my unicorn.
