I love paper. Paper is beautiful, just in itself. I mean, you can almost hang a piece of paper on the wall. But I think it was Signe Mayfield who was a creator at what was then the Palo Alto Art Center. She suggested that I try making a paper bowl around one of Bob's bowls, and so that's what got us started… And so I tried using Bob's bowl as a mold, and working around it, thought it was successful, and then it actually, on the market, it became very successful. We had many orders for what we called marriage sets. Customers would want one of Bob's bowls with a paper bowl that goes over it… Usually they were of Japanese papers. I loved the papers with a lot of inclusions.
