Thank you so much. Processed with VSCO with f2 preset Stephanie Hare is a papermaker from Maine, currently living and working in Philadelphia. First drawn to the craft through the application of light, she made custom lampshades at Handmade Papers Gallery in Brooklin, and then began to design and build her own line of handmade paper and glass lamps, as SHare Studios. After dabbling in stationery sized sheets and experimenting in rich colors, the wedding stationery world took notice, and she’s been focused on producing a wide range of handmade papers for eager paper loving brides ever since. An avid instagram user, her process photos snagged the interest of a world of budding papermakers, which led her to design a beginner’s papermaking experience, and her own line of magnetic mould and deckles. Still a one woman studio, she devotes her days to all things handmade paper. Here’s on of the lamps we talked about: This is the water table Stephanie describes in her studio. The lip around the edge catches the water, which is important, since she doesn’t have a waterproof floor. Here’s Stephanie’s papermaking kit, called The Beginners Papermaking Collection (she makes the gorgeous moulds & deckles herself)! You can find her magnetic moulds & deckles here. These are just a couple of her papers. We talked about the wedding she made the papers for that was featured in Brides Magazine. You can learn more about Stephanie on her website and follow her on instagram. ++++++ Music featuring excerpts of Makin’ Paper folk song by Peter Thomas. Listen to the full song and find out about other paper and book arts folk songs. Gary A. Hanson did the sound editing for this episode.  He practices and refines his skills in audio production while making his own podcast I’ll Have a Beer and Talk, a show about tech news, culture, weird animal stories and of course, beer. Gary is also the Deckle in Pulp & Deckle, a Portland-based community hand papermaking studio. ++++++

Thank you so much. Madeleine Durham is a paste paper artist who shows her work in her hometown of Santa Fe, NM and around the country.  She travels to many shows including the annual Guild of Book Workers  Standards Conference,  the International Calligraphy Conference, and Codex.  Her papers lend themselves well to many applications including fine book binding, calligraphy, book art, and collage.  She’s produced special-edition work for Nawakum Press, Palace Press, and Instagram. Her papers are part of the Paper Legacy Project in the Watson Library at the MET.  In a moment of inspiration years ago she happened upon a way of creating paste paper designs using a brush technique.  Her technique has evolved into a painterly approach with which she creates New Mexico landscapes and floral mandalas.  A member of the Santa Fe Society of Artists, she displays and sells her art just off the city’s historic downtown plaza.  She also teaches. Check out her gorgeous paste papers:     Watch this amazing video by Carlo Zanella about Madeleine’s work! Here you see Madeleine surrounded by her artwork at her booth at the Santa Fe Society of Artists show: You can learn more about Madeleine on her website, follow her on instagram and facebook. ++++++ Music featuring excerpts of Makin’ Paper folk song by Peter Thomas.

Melanie Brauner
You can listen to this episode by clicking on the white arrow above, or subscribe to the Paper Talk podcast in iTunes so you never miss an episode. If you enjoy the show, tell a friend about it! Thank you so much. Melanie Brauner is a hand papermaker, metalsmith, and sometimes book artist living and working in Everett, Washington. Her jewelry line, Verso, is made from hand-fabricated metal forms cast with a paper skin and coated in resin, and her mixed media sculpture is made from her own handmade paper, metal, wood, reed, and paint. Her work explores the Kantian concept that beauty can be universal, and that imitation of nature may be the path to a universal beauty. She graduated from Oregon College of Art and Craft with a BFA in 2014, where she studied book arts and metals. She launched Verso in January 2016, and now sells her jewelry at art fairs year round, and at galleries, art museum shops, and boutiques all around the country. Here are a few images of her jewelry: People often question the durability of paper jewelry. Melanie’s pieces are resilient and waterproof! We talked a bit about her sculpture: And this is the supplier she mentioned for kakishibu (persimmon tannin). You can learn more about Melanie on her website, follow her on instagram and facebook. ++++++ Music featuring excerpts of Makin’ Paper folk song by Peter Thomas.
