Funfetti Washi, 50/50 Tosa Kozo from the Obara region of Aichi Prefecture’s Toyota City, Japan and Japanese Mitsumata sourced from Carriage House Paper, Brooklyn, NY. Sprinkled with torn craft tissue paper. Fibers are beaten by hand with an oak mallet and Washi is formed on a traditional fine mesh Suketa.
Made for the 2020 Paper Swatch Swap.
A short series of instructional videos on traditional Japanese Washi making – developed for Stamps School of Art & Design printmaking and papermaking students. This project was part of my visit with the University of Michigan as Witt Visiting Artist, Fall 2020.
Thai Kozo, Tosa Kozo, & Mitsumata Washi sheets made while under the instruction of Washi Masters Tomomi and Hisashi Kano, who I had the opportunity to study with during their residency at Stamps School of Art & Design, University of Michigan, 2019.
