This 100 year old holistic dyed paper has used to wrapping textiles in old Japan.
This beautiful paper artwork is created from layers of repurposed paper that have been laminated together, doused in kaki shibu or the green persimmon tannin, and scribbled upon using sumi or charcoal based ink.
This paper dates to the first half of the 19th century. The paper itself is rich and beautiful from repurposing and wear, and the scribbled markings on the surface are random and sometimes meaningless: often they seem to be the result of someone wanting to blot the tip of an ink brush of excess ink.
Addison wanted to honor the history as well as bring a contemporary twist. A marvelous object, one with great age and history, and something wonderful to admire as an item from old Japan with a subtle contemporary touch of Addison.
