in the studio waiting on a cast coil to dry, late afternoon, November 29, 2018

We rolled some 96” x 4” strips of 5 hour double-couched abaca into coils. Then we sketched a design on some pink insulation foam; gouged it out with a cutter and carving tools; and laid the coil in the groove. It shrank taut and stiffly structural. Took 12 days to dry - about 2x as long as expected.

We’re Barb Landes and Paul Sullivan. We make handmade paper sculptures in Madison, WI.
