Example text

For pure color, cut away all parts of the paper that have been printed upon, or go to an office supply or paper specialty store. Especially at the latter, you will find colors, hues, and tints you have never dreamed of. Many of the papers will be permanent. Put the papers in a blender with water (about 3 cups with an 8-1/2- by 11-inch sheet). Run the blender for 20 to 30 seconds. You will have in your blender the same colored pulp that the paper mill put on its paper machine to make the paper you recycled.

Both of the bowls below are made of pulp obtained by recycling very ordinary paper present in most homes. The one on the left is recycled wrapping paper, and the one on the right is recycled food packaging. The variations, personal practices, and ultimate nuances of bowl making are legion. This book’s aim is to present the unchanging basics common to all of them. Knowing the basics lets you climb as high into the realms of craft and art (or commercial success) as your particular talent, imagination, and industry can take you.

Some botanicals turn totally black, which can be pleasing—or displeasing. Botanicals are probably handled best with the whole-sheet method of applying pulp. When pulp containing botanicals is poured into a hand mold to create a sheet or into a strainer to create a bowl, the botanicals tend to rise to the surface as the pulp drains. This puts most botanical elements on one side of the sheet and therefore the subsequent bowl. Botanicals can be put in whole, partially, or completely shredded. To shred, place botanicals in the blender when paper (recycling) or new pulp is dispersed by water into liquid pulp.
