New Paper Vessels

During my walk in Blue Hills a few weeks back Penny discovered a wasp's nest delicately perched high in a tree. I was fascinated. The form, the delicate layers, and the way the wasps wove in and out. I wanted to know more. How do wasp make their nest, what materials do they use, etc.
So, today, Charles and I set out create delicate vessels inspired by the wasp's nest. We shaped wire mesh and layered paper dipped in glue. Pretty cool!
