Material Muse: Japanese paper inspiring print
organized by Sigrid Blohm, the Japanese Paper Place
The twelve artists included in this portfolio each work differently, but all have decided to use Japanese paper because its unique characteristics enhance their own prints in some way. In choosing to print on washi – paper made by many caring hands – each artist’s work becomes a merging of creative processes, those of printmaker and papermaker, and the results are richer for it.
