Wall Hanging: Flax and Cotton paper on Kozo Bark Paper
9" x 15" x 1"
Flax paper constitute the rectangular pizza of this handmade paper art including the pepperoni, sprinkled with cheese made of yellow-pigmented cotton fibers.
The flax-cotton paper pizza sits on a piece of bark paper (%amate&) that was made by beating strands of cooked kozo (paper mulberry) bark with a stone into the desired shape. The roughness of the amate surface reflects the beating process used in its creation.
The completed assemblage was mounted on a wooden backing for hanging the piece.
