My Latest WIP Is Finished!

I'm just about to head out the door to teach my bead making class. But I want to show you the finished vessel before I leave - I got it done last night! I had originally planned on using one more item on it but it was too heavy and pulled the vessel over. I didn't want to add a counterweight on the other side of the vessel, so I decided to simplify. And sometimes simple is better - I've very happy with this piece!

In case you're wondering, there's a feather at the top of the vessel. It isn't permanently attached in case the future owner of this piece wants to remove it. I was rather amazed at how well it picks up the pattern I put into the top part of the vessel, that was not at all intentional.

I will leave you with my finished work of the day - and perhaps I'll have another WIP to show you later this week. For now, have a happy and creative day!

Shirley, that is a beautiful vessel!

That turned out beautifully - I love the difference in textures.

Thanks to both of you! It was really interesting working with the two different types of fibers - when I was working it, the bottom felt squishy and the top felt smooth. That one of the things I enjoy so much about felting - that tactile thing that lampworking doesn't provide (if you're fortunate!).
