Paper Collage Vessels
These unique vessels are inspired by the
colors and textures of nature; from the red
rocks of the desert to the turquoise waters
of the sea; and often feature pictographs
from ancient native cultures.
The vessels are handcrafted from papier
mache, overlaid with a collage of painted
and hand-made papers, photographic
images and found natural objects, coated
with textured metallic paints and varnish.
They evolved out of working with both clay
and landscape photography into three-
dimensional collage pieces that transform
traditional vessel shapes into receptacles
for a vision...
