More Papyrus

I think Beverly, Dorothy and Terry made some amazing papyrus pieces at our workshop at The Center. Because of the history of papyrus, I thought making it from local plants and products made the most sense. I got a little carried away at the produce department and farmers' market, so my basement fridge is still overwhelmed with vegetables.
The process is specific, but simple. And look at the possibilities! Wouldn't these look beautiful framed for kitchen art? Or laminated for coasters? Or hung in a window? They are translucent and feel like vellum. It's so exciting to see artists inspire each other with new ideas in a new medium.
