Christine Schomer - Biography

Christine Schomer’s art background is diverse. She began with illustration and advertising design, later taking up ceramics and operating a small studio for several years while teaching wheel and casting techniques. After moving to the Mendocino coast in the mid 1970's, she began studying eastern papermaking and participated in a papermakers'

guild for a number of years. She works with primarily Kozo and Gampi fibers to make Japanese-style waterleaf papers that she uses to make kites.

Christine and her husband Robert, also a ceramicist, built their own raku kiln in 2002 and are enjoying the exciting results of that firing technique.

Christine presently lives north of Fort Bragg with a couple of cats, a few chickens, a koi pond, and a large garden.
