getting better all the time

Being sick is dull, dull, dull. I’m getting better but it feels like sixteen million years since I was in the studio making anything. I’ve been able to knit but that’s not WORK. The kind that satisfies my sense of purpose and brings in chunks of bacon. (Which still amazes me!)

So to shut up my whiny, sniffly self and create the illusion that I’ve been in the studio, here’s what I was working on before the great plague* descended.

I made another experimental piece out of half-cones. This time all the bumps are on the outside.

Again I think it’s a lovely object, but not yet wearable. The search continues… as soon as I get back into that beloved studio.

Happy Leap Year!

    WOW this is fantastic. again and again i am impressed by your beautiful trust in the process: letting the object unfold, and the idea become something…so much so that even these “sketches” are stunning.

    I keep thinking what a beautiful headpiece for a bridal vale this would be in the right size

    So glad to hear you are feeling better. Up here we are buried in snow (almost the literal truth).
