Victoria started out working in handmade paper doing 2-D collages. She had the opportunity to take a class in 3-D papermaking at the Savanna School of Art and Design and at that point was hooked onto working with the paper in this way. The paper is made by mixing cotton linters with recycled paper scraps and water in an electric blender. It is then strained though a molding system called the deckle and mold, and then pressed to release the water between two board and sheets of felt. Once the sheets of paper are made, while still wet, they are wrapped around a mold that the artist has created, where they are left to dry. Once dry, the mold is removed and the sculture has been created! To view additonal 3-D paper vessles, go to this link at http://www.vpowersart.com and select the "portfolio"tab.
