Papermaking at the Banff Centre

I'm out at the Banff Centre making paper and prints using their beautiful Hollander Beater

I'm tracking the shifting colour of the sky through sheets of paper that trace the changes one sheet at a time.

a book of the sky!

The blue water left over from papermaking is amazingly beautiful on the floor.
The first 50 sheets!

The next day, back in the studio with swirls of indigo and purple 

The final book turns from fluffy blue skies at midday to the dark nights throughout 130 pages.

Next I have to make a box to keep the sky in!
