    Loving seeing the sea urchin evolve and grow…it looks immense…sculptural..the shape is so similar to a flower. It feels as if it would have a profound effect on your thinking sewing this..would love to see it in real life!

    • Mo Crow says:

      (((Christina))) when it curves into a 3D urchin form it will be less than 30 cms in diameter, the next one will be made from an old pink wool blanket so it will be close to a metre in diameter

    WOW-is all I can say-this is amazing! I

  4. dana says:

    So exquisite. It is so wonderful to see how you have elevated the urchin.

  6. Aha…Braille for the soul, and now with strings, music for the soul too?!!!!

    steady going !!!!!!!

  8. Eliene says:

    When I was a young girl, my dad used to eat kina [sea urchin] and I was always drawn to the empty shell and had them everywhere for a while. I loved the feel of them then so I too, look forward to holding this one day & reading the braille & feeling the soul of this come alive in my hands.

    This is so beautiful

    I look at this today and think of sea urchins as flowers…

  12. deemallon says:

    guitar strings? for their stiff ribbiness? feels like another collaboration with Old Man Crow

    • Mo Crow says:

      it is, Old Man Crow gives me the old strings from his Gibson & is happy they will be used he’s not interested in writing an Ode to the Urchin though, hehe!

    this just crazy great!

    • Mo Crow says:

      (((Jude))) will have all the panels stitched by tomorrow ready for the white silk lining then needle lace the edges together, the guitar strings are sorted, using the wound bottom strings
