Hand Made Paper & Wildfire Ink Deck
* ONLY 2 AVAILABLE *
Each 45 card deck was carefully crafted 100% by hand. This process includes making paper from my own paper waste, carving 44 drawings into wood, gathering small amounts of wildfire charcoal from burn sites after praying with the land, leaving an offering, processing pigment and creating ink, printing with a press, cutting, layering natural fixative to preserve ink and paper, writing, printing and binding a booklet, and creating a special case to hold these.
This work is the result of a conceptual art practice relating to the transmutation of grief and trauma as it relates to the individual and expands to the collective. This collection may be used as a tool, however it is a delicate art piece that should be handled with care. The fragile nature of this edition is an extension of the core concept of this series.
Each piece will come with a limited edition Risograph printed Book (over 135 pages) which will be sent out in April 2023
