Celestial/Outer Space Challenge
Thanks to everyone who posted in support of my 'mustard' addition to the Freeform Hat. I've worked on it some more, and I'm feeling a bit happier about the colour choice now. Will hopefully be able to post some FINISHED photos of the piece tomorrow.
But for today I'm heading back to that Designer's Challenge I talked about earlier in the month.
My plans changed dramatically on this!
I originally thought I'd go with an alien style toy (as I so often do) but it would seem that the TOY idea didn't fit with the SCULPTURE/ART FORM requirement.
Oh well... back to the drawing board...
So then I was planning a set of three alien heads for the wall. Each one was going to be the size of a human head. I'd assessed my 'plastic coated cable' stash, and decided that I had enough green to make two of the heads, and would make the third head in red.
I couldn't have been more wrong!
I had to make the first head so tiny... and even then I ran out of cable...
So it was back to the drawing board AGAIN
This time I went for a different theme, and steered away from ALIEN and more towards CELESTIAL.
I worked up my representation of the sun, crocheted from recycled copper wire and embellished with a random assortment of beads. It's a piece of wall art, which measures 27cm across. I haven't yet decided where in my house it will live!
Here's the competition thread if you would like to see the other entries.
