PAPERMAKING AT FISH-EYE
As a kid, I used so much paper that my mother would say I should only marry a man who owns a paper factory. I never did meet that man but saw how the endless piles of scrap paper generated by my children's homework assignments could be a quick fix to the paper factory problem. Fish-Eye papers are made of recycled math & history assignments combined with local plant fibers & may include polynomial equations, Euclidean geometry, The 2nd Temple Period, knotweed, bird-of-paradise, or bougainvillea. Friends owning paper shredders also contribute personal documents, embarrassing or banal. The shredded paper & plant fibers are boiled, cooled, litmus tested, placed in a vat, mashed into pulp with a hand-held electric mixer, formed into sheets with a mold & deckle, and laid to dry on smooth boards.
