Recently I created three petite works on hand made paper
to be exhibited during the FDH Paper Makers Conference
PAPER IN PARADISE · KONA, HAWAII
October 23 – 26, 2008
Featured above is “BUFFALO WATER” based on an eight inch diameter water valve cover. The original cover was cast by a Buffalo Foundary, but believe it ot not, I spotted the cover on a sidewalk in St. James, Long Island, New York (USA).
Some natural wasp paper is imbedded in the 4″ x 6″ art work.
“HIGH PRESSURE FIRE SYSTEM”
HPFS is based on the image of a valve cover located near a fire hydrant.
A friend suggested removing the leaves at the edge of the cover. Personally, I like to see a bit of green growing next to an urban cover.
Viewers, What is your opinion? Leaves or no leaves next to the water cover? Explain your choice. Add your comment below or
send it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
“WHAT GOES DOWN COMES UP AND AROUND”
Water Protection is a very important topic to me, to all of us in fact. Harmful waste products that wash down our grates and drains can affect the purity of our water supply.
