Handmade Paper Vessels and Ceremonial Urns

“Cream and Brown Vessel”

I sculpt the vessel in clay then make a mold from plaster gauze, which I cover in handmade paper made from abaca pulp, dyed with pigments. I use layers of chalk pastels on the surface. The opening is woven with cord wrapped in threads.d the interior rust colour. The rim of the vessel is coiled with cord and fibre.

12 inches high x 40 inches in circumference.
