Handmade Paper

From a new friend in Costa Rica, Silvia Piza-Tandlich, a fellow SDA member, came this wonderful group of sheets of her hand made paper that I just have to share with you. She uses pieces of it in her embroidery (visit http://www.galeriaoctagono.com/ which is a communal site, but some of her work is there)The piece in the rear has particularly luscious long thick fibres that end beautifully at the edge in the URcorner.

I feel they could be incorporated into something, with sheer perhaps? and will post pics if/when I do that. like all precious materials there is a hesitancy to cut into them but make a muck of it – which translates to ‘think twice, cut once’ an adaptation of the old carpenter’s adage. Very inspiring.
