22nd-Aug-2011 06:18 am - DPM a new approach

 Penland school of craft session 6.  sam stang.
retrospectively looking at DPM and the effect it has upon hiding the actual form of an large scale vessel.

thinking about making a bunch of small table vessels and grouping them to hide individual vessels so only the outter from is availble to the eye...
 four days later, three objects appear. the instructor of this session is perplexed (but intrigued). hot fused canes, hot cut and ressambled, rollup(ed) and formed. 
  side view with fancy pendland landscape.
think it's kinda a winner, but i am running outa time and materials. yay.

1st-Aug-2011 01:06 am - spring symphony prototypes
  a bunch of prototype daisies.

not so keen on the colours
 1st effort to get them all 'linking. the idea is a head garland.  
  finished full colour prototype.

the idea is that each link will allow it to fit any head shape, and also sit most securely.

below some of the im[pressed young ladies that needed to try it on ;)

Penland seems to be working for me.

Rescued this guy, maybe 3 years ago now, he had been snapped off and shoved behind a shed ( of a rental property I moved into). Stuck him insome dirt and watered. First flower. I take it as a sign he's happy. Hoorah
