This artisanal project is an ongoing experimentation in papermaking. The successes, failures and overall evolution of techniques are documented to form a personal journal of an ancient craft.
The project addresses the source and status of fibres; it addresses the opportunity to bring back to life old, used and unwanted paper that would have lost all trace of its past life through industrial recycling.
The project is about accepting chance and the deficiencies of handicrafts for what they offer instead of eliminating them for what they do not.
