The dance of light and shadow

Handmade white paper being expressive in itself, the play of light and shadow with subtle differences of shades create an illusion that catches attention. The translucent lines on the handmade paper create lively patterns that come to life as light shines through the paper. Special characters can be created in cotton and flax paper by using Finnish plant fibres. The watermark is a miracle hidden in a sheet of handmade paper and revealed by the light into stories and translucent images.
