The original sculptures photographed here as aluminum prints are made from the *cambium fiber of the Asian mulberry tree harvested in rural Laos. Used by the Yao tribe for religious rituals and wrapping opium, post-Vietnam War, cambium fiber has become part of the initiative to raise the standard of living of the mountain people in the making of paper products.
Through a combination of heat and pressure, the images are infused into a sheet of high-gloss aluminum. This thermal transfer process creates a vivid, crisp image with superior image clarity.
