Artwork Description: These pieces are made of 90 percent *abaca* fiber handmade paper. When the pieces are dry they are painted with *gesso* on all sides to seal the paper. Fired and *patined:patina* copper is adhered to the paper. I also use metal leaf, joint compound.
The use of handmade paper for the canvas of the piece gives an organic feel to the piece and the added benefit is that the work very light for hanging.This set of work weights about 10 lbs in total.
The pieces are wired and hung without a frame.
