Handmade Paper by Anita K. Boyle

I've been using a heavy-duty Hollander Beater machine for a couple years now. It's has made paper pulp from natural fibers like iris leaves, bamboo, straw, and also from cotton rags from shirts, socks, nightgowns, sheets, and towels.

Iris leaf pulp from this machine has also helped me create a series of container "nests." add photo
