Handmade Seichosen paper with dilute acrylic paint
This little Norway Spruce was grown by my daughter who received the seed in a match box full of reindeer poo in her Christmas Stocking many years ago. I have loved watching how the star formation of the first needles have multiplied and become branches in star formation tiers up the trunk.
This banner is painted on handmade Seichosen paper from Japan which is unbleached and has a soft natural colour. The paper has a unique and subtle texture of kozo fibres along with the watermarks of the paper makers Su or frame.
The piece is suspended from a simple batten and clear thread which can be removed on request if an alternative method of display is desired.
