Clay threads

I have had a busy June working in clay.  The closest I got to yarn was spindle spinning some wool for this piece titled Spinning Tales

At first I intended a porcelain skirt on this piece with a string coming out of the mouth.  The loose, slubby wool look more ethereal and natural.  I also wanted the tight twists with little loops.  I  soaked the wool yarn and let it dry all curly and lumpy.  It was perfect for this piece.


Now that the pieces for the exhibit is done, I will do some knitting.  I still have lots of yarn to get through and lot more tales to spin.
