As a collagist. I have saved many elements from nature including wasp nests. Wasps are indeed our first papermakers. The created forms (inside networks and outer wrappings) and the patterns in the paper. have always intrigued me. I have been combining my own handmade paper, made from the kozo plant grown in Thailand, with fragments of wasp paper. These papers will eventually be used in an installation to be created this summer at the Durango Arts Center. Stay tuned for images of the completed vision.
