A marbled paper of Christopher's shown here at the Ebru Kongress in 2016, Istanbul. It is in the Collection at Ebristan. It is the only one he did in this way and it was wonderful to see again.

El Papel Decorado in Madrid 2014/15

It was an unplanned and sudden decision not to miss the Exhibition of Decorated Papers at the Imprenta Municipal Artes Del Libro Museum in Madrid. Christopher being honored with a Case of many pieces of work and books was also part of the decision. Meeting Antonio in person after corresponding with each other for many years another reason to go. 
The first moments of arriving at this spectacular museum inspired me even before I went upstairs to
see the Exhibition. I was overcome with emotion.

Here with Antonio Velez Celemin who put the show together and the Director of the Museum Jose B.Bermejo Martin on my first of three visits.
The case in Front
and back.
It was wonderful to see the many works of friends and all the creative Artists. It was truly a wonderful treat in person though both the Digital and Catalogue are good to see also.
Thank you Antonio.

Stencil work

Lately I have tried taking images from slides and find after so many years they have faded 
but a few images are still clear enough to share.

The outer boarder so very delicate and not connecting. Positioning the pieces was a tremendous job because any glue positioned wrong would act as a resist. Truthfully I left the house and Chris only did a a few after many experiments and failures. I'm happy to look back and see his accomplishment.

A photo taken from a page in the Tribute book showing Christopher recreating a painting in Miniature "Two Figures in a Landscape."
Showing the three steps to completion. First the kumlu which then is covered with a resist and then the combed marbled pattern.
Here a page from the Tribute book showing the three stages and a slide photo of the original.
