New Studio, New Project

The past few days have been spent settling into a sunny bedroom overlooking the Wenatchee River, learning the rhythms of community life here at the Grunewald Guild, and of course jumping straight into my first project in a new studio space. Never before have I moved into a studio that already has such good working energy. Although I’m the only one in here at the moment, I am surrounded by the residue of those whose creativity has enlivened this space before me — a warm and comfortable chaos of boxes and art supplies and general detritus. It feels really good.

My first project here is a continuation of the sculptural book-making that I was doing in the fall. The pages of this book are a dove-gray paper, and are graduated in size so that it can spiral around itself like a snail shell or a fiddle head fern. I am nearly done folding the signatures right now, and it’s looking like the spine will be a little over 10 feet in length. If all goes well, I should be able to start binding in the next couple of days.
