Paper Birch Bark Series
Yarn, handmade abaca papers, paper birch bark, and wool roving are woven and twisted together to create small dimensional forms of feeling and thought. Within a complex web of societal demands, personal dreams, and the needs of reality, stressful tensions and beautiful predicaments are found. The taming and weaving together of these opposing forces seems to be a critical step and constant feat within a person's life. Natural materials, more akin to skin and hair, depict the intimate mark these forces have on the development and care of the self.
