The crowned jewel of my mould and deckle collection, a wonderfully large 15 x 23’’ Ash mould and deckle. A while back, a furniture maker friend of mine, Lou Charlett, helped me design and build a stunning collection of mould and deckles for my emerging papermaking business. As is his infinite wisdom in wood working, he encouraged me to make multiples, so I ended up with two of these awesome moulds. I’ve held onto the spare one for quite a while, but finally decided to coat her in thick marine epoxy and finish her up for a new papermaker out there. This is absolutely one of a kind, and I will not be making a mould in this style and size again. And she’s such a beauty. The frame (deckle) fits over the screen (mould), and feels wonderful in the hand, with that smooth epoxy finish. The strong center stretchers give the perfect support to the heat shrinking polypropylene screen. Truly a wonderfully handcrafted papermaking tool.

Approximately 15 x 23 ‘‘' inside frame. Over all size is 25 1/2 x 17 3/8’’.
