I’m on a twining roll. Started with paper twist and baling twine on Thursday and ended with the newspaper plastic bags today. Two separate pieces, one technique.
The baling twine and paper twist has some character to it – undulations, an opening on the side, a really nice found stick running through three sides of the piece.
The plastic bags piece has color – from the bags (blue and orange and dark green during winter so you could see it in the snow plus some lovely pale greens, oranges and tans). It’s shape is pretty staid – basically didn’t try anything different do to the very limp nature of the material. Halfway through the piece my love asked if I was making a bag to hold the bags? Well…. That must be what it is! Added a twisted handle at the end and hung it in the garage. More bags to come!
Will get some pics up later this week. ITMT, pics of the Oxford exhibit, Rock Paper Scissors are up on my Flickr site.
