About this piece:
I created this piece during the pandemic using existing egg carton box. I made dozen egg shaped coptic stitch books. Each book is created with a recycled or naturally dyed paper. In some instances, I printed on the paper or I used proofs. The imagery is made with small wooden blocks with recycled balsa wood. Since I was not able to use my studio I improvised, used a lot of recycled or naturally dyed paper. I printed even on paper from flour packaging. I used recycled books, maps or all prints.
