When I create the Pages of the Notebook in Natural Dyes and Inks, some sheets of handmade paper are rejected because their composition is not optimal. My attitude of openness to the unforeseen in creation, combined with my eco-responsible approach, leads me to evaluate positively these rejects. The Rescued series stems from the reprieve I gave them.

Resized, these handmade papers are arranged in new configurations that are stabilized with collage, sewing or embroidery. As for a 1000-piece puzzle, it takes several tries to put the right piece in the right place and achieve balance and harmony.
