Erin Cramer

I make paper from natural fibers and use it as a sculpting medium.

Handmade paper’s seductive versatility allows me to create light weight works of art that look like they are made out of anything from concrete to skin.

The fibers I use to make paper include flax, hemp, wheat straw, cotton, abaca, kozo, recycled clothing, and recycled scrap papers.

In addition to handmade paper sculpture, I also create artists books, masks, soft sculpture, and installations.
