MARGARET MERRITT:  Printmaker and Papermaker
MAGIC MOUNTAIN 3
2006
Amate Bark Paper
25" x 4" x 2"
Wall sculpture composed of multiple "mountains" formed from kozo amate (bark paper) and sewn together with nylon thread (not visible). Most of the mountains were colored by dyeing the kozo fibers themselves; others, by dyeing the completed individual pieces.

The completed assemblage was mounted, by sewing, onto wooden strips that provide the support for hanging the piece.
