Old Beginnings
Piante Gallery, Eureka, California
2014

Pods, blobs, and nests ranging from 14 to 24 inches in diameter, fabricated from reeds, handmade kozo paper, linen, hemp, ramie cord and other mixed media.  Coated with kakishibu, a shellac-like Japanese material made from fermented persimmon juice that strengthens, waterproofs, and darkens the paper.
