Yesterday you may have caught a glimpse of something I've been working on. That spiky little guy is my latest textural stone and what I'm calling one of my "conversations with the residents".
Often when I'm out woods-wandering I'll find little mementos left by the woods-dwellers. Some of these are not things I want to bring home (ahem) but sometimes I can't help but wonder what I can make with some of these found treasures.
A tuft of deer hair, a turkey feather, a couple of porcupine quills...
I've been holding on to these and waiting for the right project. I like the mix of textures and the idea of combining found natural materials with cultivated natural materials.
I think I also like them because they're a little strange.
These little guys will be in my shop tomorrow, along with another set or two of textural stones.
Have a great day, everybody.
