Letterforms and words are another obsession of mine, and this piece by Marcella Violini combines letterform with paper-making. The delicate, handmade Kozo was dyed naturally, embroidered with the words “I can do this,” and wrapped loosely around a wooden spool. The work has an imperfect, homey quality about it, but is still beautifully and lightly crafted. For more of Violini’s ethereal aesthetics, go here.
