Kozo is a remarkably ancient and modern material—a steamed inner bark traditionally grown in Asian countries for papermaking. We'll look at the history and learn the traditional preparation of this bark fiber, and then experiment with pioneering techniques Jill has developed using kozo in contemporary art. Instead of using sheets of paper, we will cook the kozo then form and cast it directly with specific techniques for creating two- and three-dimensional art, including beautiful vessels, collage, sculpture and translucent wall hangings. The bark fiber art has a diaphanous appearance, but is actually incredibly strong. Those familiar with kapa will enjoy learning about this sister fiber and its use in contemporary art.
