Scraps of scraps

This week has been hard, getting the making part of work done while the admin sucks me into a black hole. But I made a stab at it last night and made this itty bitty vessel that is exactly the size of a thimble (maybe a tad shorter, but it fits on my finger). I used hanji scraps from endsheets I prepared for a binding (paper made in Cleveland) and the spokes are the bits of bark leftover from the last vessel.
The base is smaller than a penny! Meanwhile, in business-land, books have been selling particularly well this week and I get dribbles of happy news every day (today, a heads up that a museum may start to carry it and another major university library has already ordered it). And the first book-in-sheets is bound!
