"Jill Powers achieves the mysticism of the orient with handmade paper that she casts into starkly simple forms.  The serene oblong shape of Ms. Powers's "Reverence" has the essence of  an Oriental reliquary.  A single dried okra pod hangs down in front like a ceremonial vessel."
-Review from the Sunday New York Times - July 15, 1990

Abundant diversity

The size and variety of seaweeds at Big Sur was astonishing!  This is one of my favorites- a deep red heavily textured seaweed called Condracanthus, or Turkish Towel! 

The field work with the Jepson Herbarium of UC Berkeley was so rich in learning and specimens!

Pacific Coast Seaweeds

The beauty and richness of seaweeds on the Pacific coast will soon be my enviroment, as I embark on a field research trip to Big Sur California!  I will be joining Dr Kathy Ann Miller from UC Berkeley, and the Jepson Herbarium!  We will be camping in tents, harvesting and studying seaweeds at low tide in the various tidal zones.
