Entry Description

experimental vegan bags

In my project I was aiming to refresh and renew the old technics used in processing the by product, of growing maize. For the natural coloring I used native Hungarian plants and crops. This allowed me to produce natural shades through out my experimentation. The corn husk when it becomes wet and then shaped takes up the form of what it is put in or over it. This made it possible to create unique variations in structures and surface manipulation.
