Anniversary gifts have been my favorite commissions lately.

Like this one–made of paper, which is the traditional gift for the first anniversary, plus a little dash of cotton (thread) to see them into their second year.

This piece includes the client’s poem printed on my own handmade paper, some of which is tinted with dried chestnut pigment harvested last fall.

Sometimes work is so much fun!
