Bonnie is making cyanotype records of discarded household minutiae.
Cyanotype, also known as blueprint, is a historical photographic process using sunlight to make an image on treated paper or cloth.
Your loaned glassware will be treated with care and not affected in any way. Everyone who loans objects will receive one small cyanotype as a thank you.
