Cotton fibers, cotton shoddy, hand-cast paper
Ovoid wall sculpture
21" x 12" x 8.5"
The colors of the materials and simple form, lines and textures combine to express the reverence I feel for the beauty and sensuality of nature. The red and gray colored fine fibers, called shoddy, are supplied from a recycling factory. The "tufts" are individually sliced pieces of cotton cording that are held to the hand-cast paper with archieval fiber glue in order to create a soft
blanket, similar in texture to moss.
