a life of fibre

Hmm….

I stopped working on this second white pot a week ago, it has a nuno lace interior and cut throughs to devore on the top. I can’t say I’m thrilled with the overall shape, it’s maybe a little bit flat for me, and it does have creases round the side.

The question I’m pondering and have been pondering for the last week, is whether to continue felting, reshape it and eradicate the creases or whether to sitch on it, as is, and make the creases a feature. It is all going to be about texture, perhaps it would be better to smooth it out and the texture be all about the stitching?

I thought perhaps you might have an opinion but you know what, this little chat has helped me enormously, I think I need to rework it! Even if I smother it with stitches I just don’t think I’m going to love the shape. Isn’t it funny how writing about it here has actually clarified it for me?  Thanks for chatting, I’ll go and make a start.
