Hanji Photographic Collection 2012 ....

Well I've almost completed my 'Photographic collection' of boxes, they're all ready to be varnished.

I've combined my love of photography with my love of Hanji and come up with something that I think is pretty unique. 

For this first collection I've made all the boxes the same size but  they could be made in any size and that would open up all sorts of possibilities for doing Hanji in the future.

You could make memory boxes for people you love and present them as a gift, you could make gifts to give away at weddings with the couples picture on them or you could just use your favourite travel photographs placed on a box to remind you of a special trip.

I've done one set in sepia, because personally I love the effect of the muted tones as it gives a timeless, classic look and the second set is done in colour with the photos complemented with matching coloured papers. All of the photographs were taken during my stay in Korea.

The photos were printed onto a special handmade paper and then used during the making of the boxes, just as any other Hanji paper. 





 I hope you like the new collection .........
