I do like this fella. He was certainly a pain before I got smart enough to build a stand so I could leave it in one position while I worked. A pain like this (and worse).
The next version, which I just started Friday morning, should go more smoothly.
The process itself was simple, but pretty time-consuming. Also, found a good use for some of my half-podbaby pit-fired shells I have laying around.
The meaning is pretty self-explanatory. The farther we go, the more tangled things become, for better or worse, until you wake up and can’t figure out where, when, how something started or ended and you can’t seem to do much about it. I suppose that’s not a very optimistic outlook, just thoughts in my head as I made all these tangled paths of thread.
Materials: Slip cast earthenware, rayon (Sulky) thread, glass beads
