hand made paper, shifu, artists' books, north country living, and some words
the burdock was about all that i didn't recognize...3 out of 4 not too shabby. i once received, as in accessioned, an artist's book that was made with hair...the paper was made with hair, a braid was used for the binding (like a tape) and the box it came in was a bed of hair. when i took it out of the container, all the "free" hair started shifting and floating. it was a little weird and creepy but i must admit, i have never forgotten that piece. and how will all these float together or apart. happy hearts' day to you and ms. wendy too.
I now know what to do with all that hair on the floor of our house! Lovely soft muted colours all of them!.
It also looks a lot like what I stare at when I make winter branch drawing with white brushstrokes on black paper!
henrietta, hair stuff is rather creepy, this is maybe a year of hair that i decided to see if i could make hold together in a round...may have to ask my needle felting friends for help!fiona, on, no, i've started something! seriously, i clean up the hair of three dogs and my own 18 inch give or take long hair...it seemed silly not to try to see what i could do with it!valerie, YES, except yours are much more beautiful
that burdock ball is beautiful. what an idea to put that together.x
thanks for not posting hearts.i died-note the spelling- of schmaltz OD.those spools are gorgeous!
judy, yes. i borrowed it. and then i learned alot about burdock.neki, i get really really tired of hearts, too. spools are another borrowed idea. good for storage
what i learned about burdock is that it sticks fast, to me.
jude, my elderly friend had to cut out a huge clump from the crown of her head after a garden cleanup!
love the burdock ball but the hair gives me the creeps. best of all are the spools.
jean, me, too. creepy for sure. i want to make it more solid and then, er, do something with it. (it reminds me too of margaret atwood's story "hairball")
Those spools of fibers are fantastic!
nancy, i've been storing my short skeins after dyeing in the eco-baths this way, they're pretty, and easy to use and all those old spools get a new life.
