paper from plant fibres

I work with a variety of plant fibres to construct my artworks. Fibres such as cotton, Kozo, Abaca and locally sourced plants from the backgreens of Edinburgh to the outlying Scottish countryside.

 

 

 

Papers cast from yucca, kozo and paper pigments.

An outdoor workshop for Taliesin, a South West Scotland Community Woodland Trust in Dumfries and Galloway. Bullrush stems were gathered then cooked with onion skins for colour, the resulting pulps were beaten with a mallet and colourful papers were made.
