swimming in gampi

Here's a little peek at one of my current projects, a collaboration with Cheryl Jacobsen for Hand Papermaking Magazine's 8th limited-edition portfolio, "Calligraphy and Handmade Paper." The paper is Japanese gampi formed in a deckle box, with a pseudo-watermark (applied post-pressing, but pre-drying). These days I'm just swimming in vats of Japanese gampi.
