Work in Progress – Berry Pods on Branch

felt balls!
that's a lot of felt balls

_____________________________________________________________________________________

Step 1: Spend way too much time making felt balls. — Oddly enough, it’s a soothing exercise. When I was too tired to do anything, let alone think, I could still make felt balls (which involves a very sharp instrument, so don’t discount it completely).

______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________Step 2: Make pod shells   – sadly, I have a disgraceful camera, so these are more dark reddish purple than what you see here.

Step 3: Sew felt balls into pods.

Step 4: Realize it needs something more.

Step 5 (WILL BE) to create an approx. 5′ abstracted branch form from cherry ply, so the composition you see here will not be the final layout. It will be much more stretched out. Or so I think…
