Handmade Paper Vessels and Ceremonial Urns

“Rust 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.

12 inches high x 40 inches in circumference.
