Seed pod

Quite often when I start a hand moulded vase / vessel I’m not sure what shape the end product will be it depends how I feel and what starts to develop under my hands. I recently bought some Dorset Horn fibres and have just been waiting for an opportunity to try it.

It’s a lovely colour and the texture can vary from English fibre to Merino fibre quality. This began life on a round resist and I cut a y shape slit to remove it. I’m really pleased with the result, it looks like a seed pod, a little like a poppy.

Hopefully it’s possible for you to see the shine provided by the throwsters silk waste that I added on the shoulders.  really liking this one.
