Last fall Susan Lenz was showing some of the incredible work she was creating during her six week artist residency at the Robert M. MacNamara Foundation in Maine. After seeing her series of acorn cap pots/bowls I decided I must give a try at creating one of these soft fiber pots, minus the acorn caps.
I wasn’t exactly sure how to go about this so I pulled out this book that I’ve had for ages (but hadn’t tried anything yet from it).
It turned out to be easier than I thought, but somewhat time consuming i.e. making the yarn rope to create the bowl.
As usual, I had to stray a little from the directions and do my own thing, hence the somewhat wonky shape. This one measures 2 ½ inches tall by 4 ½ inches across.
Since I had the book out, I figured I might as well have a go at creating one of the clothesline wrapped bowls from the book, especially after seeing all of the ones that Terry and Vicki made recently.
This one measures 2 ¾ inches tall and 7 ¾ inches across. DH named it Lava.
