Homage to Bontecou
The covers of this handmade book were created in polymer clay. The varied natural colors are reminiscent of the found canvas of Bontecou's art. The" welded" elements are represented by street sweeper needles and grommets. There is an impression in the front cover to symbolize the black hole of the original work.
The book is bound using the paired needle Coptic stitch with butterscotch waxed linen. The text is comprised of 112 pp of deckled Brockway natural paper with mulberry and vellum accent pages.
