Going Back "home" March 02 2010

Still not sure which is which: Japan or the USA, but the timing seems just about right to depart from one home or the other. My other self gradually gets unpacked upon arrival: paperwoman: the (mainly) researcher in Japan and paperwoman: the teacher/marketeer back in the US. This was a few days ago at a friend/client's in Japan: http://oasis-pure.com
Now, I'm between homes.. this week here in the Lone Star State: Texas Nonetheless, I won't be a "lone star"! Together with my long time client and friend, Joan Son; an amazing paper artist, both morning and afternoon on March 4th in Houston I will do a talk and slide presentation on how Japanese paper is made: From Fiber to Finish, followed by an Origami Demo by Joan, at Texas Art Supply on Montrose: www.texasart.com.
Yesterday, I saw Joan's incredible paper robes in person at her studio- unbelievable! and she used our exclusive Laurelai Designs in this stunning piece shown to the left. For more of Joan's incredible work in paper, check out her website: www.inthefold.com.
