Work in Progress – untitled vessel

To take a break from the bookmarks and to show you something I am actually working on, here is one of my wall hanging vessels from a few years back that I am redoing. This is the first stage: threading. We’ll see how much layering I’ll do. You can see I’m starting to build a decent thickness in the upper right of the detail shot. The string hanging down has the needle on it right now, but in the end there will be many strings hanging down like that with seed beads on the ends. So goes the idea at the moment. It’s a good piece to work on late at night when I’m too tired to really think and when I’m finished for the night, I just hang it back on the wall!
