  • This decorative handmade paper bowl is of traditional and locally gathered fibers including flax, hemp, kozo, corn and gingko leaves. It is accented with a line of lacy, open paper overlaid with a single fern leaf, reflecting the Missouri landscape. The bowl has a coating of acrylic gel medium for surface protection and will retain its color best if you keep it out of direct sunlight. The artist has created it for decorative use. Bowl measures 15 inches in diameter.

  • Bright Birds! This flock of three-dimensional, hand-cut paper birds has just taken flight from an iridescent twig. About to settle in some unseen garden they give the appearance of having spent summer in a tropical paradise; how else could their plumage be so colorful? This mobile group may be just the thing to help you hold spring’s delights through the gray months ahead. They are light in weight, thus easy to hang from a tiny hook or bracket. Give them a home in your house, or invite them to vacation in Nana’s birdcage. ©2006
