A Patient Process
The method of making paper lanterns is an analog one requiring consistency, skill, and patience. The process begins with assembling a wooden form and wrapping it in bamboo strips. Japanese paper is stretched around to the form and individually hand-painted with our sunny orange dots pattern, then secured with black caps on the top and bottom.
