Carrot Paper

Warren, Connecticut. I've been collecting handmade paper for many years now and recently I found some amazing paper made out of cross sections of thinly sliced vegetables and fruit. This is very thin and translucent paper with the consistency of parchment and I'm totally in love with the patterns and colors it makes when pressed in this form.

 

I hung it so as to back light it with natural light from a skylight although if I had a light table that would have worked too.
