Paper

The making of paper is a magic process in which the papermaker is a tool, transforming plants into sheets. The preparation can be simple and fast, or elaborate and long, or anything in between. Different fibers make different papers and combining different fibers increases the variety of the results. From the finest transparent mitnan paper to the strongest hemp paper, its character can vary as much as us humans.

More than 30 years experience in the field gave us plenty of time for experiments that gave birth to unique techniques, among them vat marbling, water jet drawing and polychrome watermarks.

May you find what you were looking for!

Let us know if there are any specific fibers/materials which you could not find here and you would like to be added...happy browsing!

 

Jewellery

Not all pulp has to become paper, in form of paper sheets. It is again the leftovers of paper production that scream to be recycled and reborn. Some of our jewellery is realized in "textile clay", a pulp and glue recipe developed over the years. All pieces have one thing in common: they're lighweight, strong, durable and are one-of-a-kind.

On the other hand, wood, copper, gold leaf, textiles and a great variety of other materials gathered from the studio and/or from nature find their way into yet more one-of pieces.

 

Artwork

One of the strongest traits of paper is its chameleon-like adaptability. And it's true: it can be so different in size, shape, color, thickness, surface appareance, translucency, opaqueness, in strength, in 2D or 3D and so much more...The initial choice of raw material may lead to which character traits the final work will hold. Living in a natural setting, we have ample access to all kinds of cellulose, the source of all papermaking. 

Art comes from opening the heart, the mind, and all senses to what surrounds.

The artwork is the junction where artist and collector meet. 

 

And more...

By "more" we intend the miscellaneous items and materials which we found worthy to be offered to you. They are a result of our passion for collecting odds and ends, curiosities from marketplaces, river banks, beaches and field trips. From paper bowls to textile wall hangings, from material manipulations to ready-mades, this collection is a colorful compilation of our fantasy. Enjoy!
