yam-totem-1976-Arnhem LandLast month the mortuary beetles ate all the feathers on this Yam Totem from Arnhem Land circa 1976,
so I unwound the ochre stained hand plied plant fibre string, froze it for 10 days and buried the inner bark.
to-beginJude Hill is Considering Weave in her What-If Diaries #2  so I started weaving a vessel with the string
weavingthen unwove it this morning as it really didn’t feel right
unweavingThe string needs to lay fallow for awhile &  just relax back into being a string

    have to agree with previous comment: looked great to me, but you know what you’re doing and what you want, cannot wait to see what you will end up with

      I have to give the string time to settle, will keep handling it gently to get the feel for it … felt the stitching was too restrictive it had never been stitched before… it needs more air with room to breathe

    Mo, you are the most thoughtful artist I know. Your string has found a good home and in time may or may not become something else.
