I enjoy making paper and engaging in the field with others. While I may have tweaked technique over the years, my methods are fairly standard. I love working with linen. Most of my artwork is three dimensional. I use Howell Beater #2, which is a one pounder built in 1952 by Douglass Howell and re-built by David Reina.It works great. I have one of the last presses built by Howard Clark, which is delightful to use. Air drying fascinates me because of the uncertainty of shrinkage.
Thanks for this project.
