I'm working on the panels for the Mother Tree, which is quite involved. The paper is handmade abaca, double-couched with hemp thread in between. Several sheets are patchworked together (with glue) to make the paper panels.

I'm using my knowledge of Japanese lamp-making to create the armature and templates for the paper panels. It is slow-going with many steps, and thankfully I have a steady intern for a few weeks!
