I just saw these incredible clogs, wow. And before I forget: Julie Sirek is looking for clothing/textile donations for her newest work.
I've been busy in the studio. Today, I picked and beat and beat and beat
and my body is screaming from all of that standing and picking and
beating. I also gave a tour of the Morgan to a lovely family and got
great news from everywhere. Like what you see above: Julie set up her own small hanji vat in Iowa!!! And the sheet formation is going great. This is the first official hanji sprout that came out of the Morgan's hanji studio, almost five years after its maiden voyage. Not only that, but another one is near completion at the University of Iowa, at the hands of two of their students.
I insist on this being a good omen for the rest of the weekend. Enjoy!
