Paper Making Inspiration

Below is a link to an inspiring story about a papermaker from Germany with a true passion for his craft.  Yes, he specializes primarily in making wood-free paper, but also recycles used paper to make paper just as we do at Wooden Deckle. 

I love how he loves his craft, his process, and his paper!  See if this video doesn't inspire you too. And watch for his "watermark" at the end of the video - so cool.

The Papermaker

"paper can be the bearer of emotions, a love letter comes to mind...
...paper can have the power of life and death..."
                                                                           
- Gangolf Ulbricht

Sometimes the paper itself is enough...

Sometimes the paper itself is enough, sometimes it becomes a drawing, a book or a sculpture...

Friends,

I love, love, this quote from Lucy Baxandal, one of the most prolific, interesting papermakers I "know."  I follow her on facebook (and maybe instagram too, I think) and her papers, ideas, and projects are gorgeous.  I wish she was in the US, I'd sign up for some of her classes. 

If you are a papermaker and occassionally need inspiration or fresh ideas, conisder following her - it will be well worth your time. 

Happy papermaking!
