Original Hand Cast Paper

Cast Paper is simply the art of combining the ancient art of paper making with sculpture. It is using 100% acid-free rag paper pulp and creating 3-dimensional works of art. The pulp is hand packed and manipulated in keeping with the design, pressed, blotted and allowed to dry. After approximately four hours of slow, controlled drying, the art is inspected and initialed. The thickness varies from 1/16” to 1/4” and occasionally thicker. No two pieces are exactly alike.

Each piece is an original, hand crafted sculpture made entirely of rag paper. It is then“floated” in a frame with appropriate colored mats. All are completely framed. The pristine white of the sculpted paper and its natural deckle makes its own unique statement as the light brings out the subtle details. The 13 x 17 Palmetto and Welcome, however, has neutral colored mats designed to fit any color scheme. The ‘Faux Bronze’ pieces are cast paper hand painted to resemble metal with its dark patina and shiny highlights. You will find that each is mounted on specially made paper for display. We frame our Cast Paper because they are so fragile. Please allow from 3 to 15 days for delivery.

Ray sculpts his own original designs as well as his 3-dimensional interpretations of a variety of familiar symbols. Click on any of the miniatures below for a larger view of the entire piece which also will describe the sizes, etc.
