In March we spent 2 weeks working with artist in residence Vivian Sming on site at Camp Colton, in support of our partnership with Stelo Arts and Culture Foundation. Vivian worked with cotton linter, Thai Kozo, Philippine Gampi, and locally harvested Scotch Broom fibers. She explored Nepalese style papermaking to create large sheets of paper on site in a pond and creek flowing heavy with winter rain and snow melt.
With a background in independent publishing Vivian was working with a variety of fibers and techniques with the goal of making a large scale book. We look forward to seeing how her work evolves at the group exhibition for this program opening at Stelo in November of this year.
Pulp & Deckle is a handmade papermaking studio located in Oregon.
