Dihangara by Robbin Silverberg & Artist Proof Studio. Mixed media, printing on paper on metal hangers, copper tubing, Dobbin Mill papers. 14 artists contributed portion of the edition - an image using a hanger as structure. Prompt was "The Emperors' Clothes" & line from a Carl Sandburg poem, "I write what I know on one side of the paper & what I don't know on the other". Story/text are metaphors for the blend of reflections on what we can know, do know, & want to know.
Michelle Maher's stoneware (cone 8) paper clay recipe inspired by Henry Pim's demo at International Ceramics Festival 2005. 2 parts crank clay body : 1 part paper pulp (I use 3 ply toilet roll) + 1 ml pure tea tree oil for each toilet roll used - slows down rotting! I get up to 6 months from a batch. I've been using this recipe for 10 yrs, firing to 1260 C and it's a fantastic clay body - very plastic, light, glazes well - but you must VENTILATE YOUR KILN CORRECTLY!! www.ceramicforms.com
