Student Narrative

Japanese papermaking is a lengthy, tedious process, however the result of the long hours is rewarding as strong paper, despite its fragile appearance is produced. As the three part Japanese tale of Momotarou resonated with the process of the papermaking, I wanted to have these two together to show the rewards of what perseverance can bring.
