Shrunken Worlds

I create Shrunken Worlds using a ship-in-a-bottle method, hand cutting gorgeous papers, writing out bits of poems, then assembling the pieces inside glass forms of various shapes. Tools? Scissors, a wood skewer, tweezers, and patience. It's a meditative activity. The colors, patterns, textures and shapes delight me; the final paper sculpture never fails to surprise me. I'm always looking for ways to combine art and poetry. This works.

In the morning, I'll be outside checking the recycling stash from my building for suitable containers before they all get collected and whisked away!

Sounds like a fun idea to try. Thanks for sharing.
