Material Explorations

Experimenting with fibers and structures: Vines

I have forever loved the structures behind vines and Spanish Moss (Tillandsia usneoides), with their repeating structure with variances that combine to form larger shapes and structures

I (wet) felted some wool-roving, then (wet and dry) felted the pieces together to form larger vines and shapes.

Then I started to shape them as I wet felted them.

I connected them into longer formations then wrapped them around a metal and wood headboard intertwined with some lights for mood and night lighting.

I’d love to see more of these structures going vertically and forming a lattice-like structure.
