flight palimpsest storyblock
The newest palimpsest block from the studio, with a lovely raven in flight.
Each piece has multiple layers of handwritten stories on flight & imagination, that are sanded lightly & erased before the next layer is added. The palimpsests have such a distinct feel of living thought captured in flight. They're some of our favorite pieces...
