PAPERMAKING: A FIBROUS ALCHEMY

The process behind this collection of handmade stationery begins with the long kozo fibers harvested from the Paper Mulberry, and Abaca plant . Entirely by hand, the fibers undergo a transformation of reverence. They are cooked and cleaned, and beaten in a hollander beater before preparing for pigmentation. The fibers are blended with a colorful variety of lightfast pigments and suspended in a vat filled with water. put into motion with the swirl of the hand, the long fibers are churned into the mix, as the vat morphs into a new kinetic composition. A dip of the mould and deckle below the surface swiftly collects a sheet of pulp as the water shimmies back in to the vat. The sheet is then pressed and dried. A quick sort, trim, and fold of the the finished paper, and the final transformation is complete. The pages wait for your words.


Porridge Papers

In the early 90’s I bought a paper making kit. Before I knew it there were designers, customers and a damp musty basement. I ended up in front of a banker. A “hobby business” he called it! Well I decided to do it my way…the hard way. Nebraska to New Mexico and back. With the help of some amazing employees we have made paper for weddings, presidential events, famous bands and not so famous. Produced a single custom sheet for an order and 2.2 million for another! After a quarter of a century making paper who knows what the future holds. But one thing I can say, there is a lot more paper to be made!
