Mary Maynor has been a papermaker for almost twenty years, during which she studied many areas of Western and Japanese papermaking. The paper led her into related arts of printmaking, letterpress and bookbinding. She utilizes her paper in miniature artist books that are often embellished with polymer and precious metal clays. For many years Maynor has applied wax to her papers for the strength that it adds, with more recent explorations of wax surface techniques. Her latest work has begun to take the language of the book even further into new sculptural forms.
