Susan Avishai

JOOMCHI is a 500 year-old Korean paper-making technique that uses water to seal several layers of thin, handmade mulberry papers together to form a single, strong sheet. The paper is first wet, then aggressively gripped, grabbed, stretched, and manipulated until the fibers are broken down, or felted. A major transformation occurs: flat sheets of paper become a very organic, leather-like, almost living form.

Susan Avishai is a Toronto-based multimedia artist with 15 solo shows, international awards, and featured work in "Fiber Arts Now," "Textile Fibre Forum" (Australia), "Surface Design Association Blog" and the book Dimensional Cloth: Sculpture by Contemporary Textile Artists.
