Framed woven paper artwork 'Beyond'

This bright and cheerful framed woven paper artwork has been made from one of my abstract photos which was cut into 10 and 5mm strips and woven back together again.

The weaving measures 11.5cm square and has been framed using a double thickness white mount and put into a hand painted blue frame. The deep shadow box frame is 25cm square and 4.5 cm deep. It has a wire ready for hanging but also looks good standing on a shelf.

I've been fascinated by paper weaving for a while now, I love to watch the colours and patterns interact as the work progresses. The strips are secured with a PH neutral glue which won't stain and remains flexible, so don't worry about your art unravelling.

You can find some of my abstract photos here on Small Market, they are available as prints. There is also a sister paper weaving called Distant World, they look great together!

About 2minty studio

Hello! We are a husband and wife team at 2minty studio.

Mostly it all started when we moved house and had a real studio, on site, with plenty of space. It was amazing and very quickly we both wanted to act on creative ideas which had been bubbling in the background for a while.

Girts, a retired architectural photographer, has always been intrigued by hand-built ceramics, the possibilities with shape, texture, glaze and decoration just really engage him. So a new kiln came to the studio and all sorts of things began to disappear from the house, empty bottles to use as moulds, kitchen scales, and lengths of material to create textured clay all found their way there. He shapes the clay by hand rather than using a potters wheel.

When the kiln is opened after a firing and the waiting for it to cool down is over, the lid is lifted with great excitement. Will it be triumph or tragedy? Thankfully, usually the former.

My paper weaving started some years ago when I was doing test prints of abstract photos I had taken for book publishers to use on their covers. The fine art paper was so lovely and velvety I couldn't throw them away. Later I came back to them and cut one into strips, and the rest just followed naturally.

I love how the colours and textures interact when woven, it's quite a slow progress but I love to watch it take shape. It's exacting and methodical work but I find it relaxing. I have quite a paper stash, lots of old maps which I love, old books and shop catalogues. Always the paper is acid free and matt.

Recently I've really enjoyed making something that is three dimensional and the cotton rope bowls have become addictive. So many ways to decorate, and an infinite number of possible shapes, all so useful. In our house, every prototype bowl gets filled very quickly!
