This unique vessel is made using dune grass of which I boil and beat to a pulp to create the handmade paper. The grass is first gathered at the Oregon coast. I then take it back to to studio and boil it for several hours. It is then crushed and formed into a paper pulp. I use a bowl mold to press the pulp onto to form the vessel shape. Once it has dried over several days I coat it with acrylic medium making it extremely strong. I've then added recycled crushed glass mixed in resin to the outside. A unique fun piece!
I love the Oregon coast and thought that some of my handmade papers from that location would make an interesting paper art piece!
