This past week I have been finishing up my latest Earth Spirit Vessel, Autumn Blaze. I actually started this last fall, but was so busy this past winter and spring, that I never got it finished. So after coming back from a wonderful calligraphy and art retreat, I decided to finish some past projects before I delved into starting new pieces of paper art.
Some of the papers in Autumn Blaze are hand painted paste papers. I included gold powder in the paste paper. It gives the vessel a subtle glow that isn’t quite apparent in the photo.
Autumn Blaze contains 592 pieces of hand folded pieces of 2″ by 4″ paper. Each piece of paper is folded 9 times and glued in place. While it is not necessary to glue the pieces, I have never had anyone want a vessel that was not glued. I only raised boys, and I know how inquisitive minds like to take things apart to see how they were made. I think my customers must think like me.

About Flowers of Hope
The Flowers of Hope program provides the venue, equipment and supplies for local artists to make 8” x 8” glass panels at a nominal fee of $15. Then LightGarden Glass Art gives these glass panels, decorated with flower art, to women with breast cancer. LightGarden Glass Art collects these panels all year long, puts them on display at an Artist’s Reception, then delivers them to Women’s Imaging at Asante Medical Center. Women with breast cancer have the opportunity to pick a panel of their choice from the panels on display at the Imaging Center before they go into surgery. We hope that creating these panels brings joy and hope to these women who so desperately need some comfort.
This is our 11th year and we have collected over 800 panels for this great cause! Learn more about how you can get involved HERE.
