A number of years ago, I came across some "art bundles": little "sculptures" made of paper and newsprint turned into bundles, glued closed, painted, and tied with string, labels and other little objects. In their heart, under all that paper, glue and paint, was a note or image from the artist. Of course you couldn't see it, it was the mystery within. I was fascinated enough to make my own art bundles, and gave them as gifts.
Hanne's waxed packets remind me of these bundles and that's why I like them so much. (I'm a big fan of Hanne; her work speaks very clearly to me, possibly because it reflects my own likes and sensibilities.)
I made this one as a mother's day bundle. Before I waxed the fabric, I burned a small hole in it to create a little "window." I love how it turned out. It was time-consuming because I'm still learning to handle the wax, but it is so exciting to be creating these, I mean, I'm excited like a child! Thank you, Hanne, for all the inspiration.
