paper urchins





Some new work I've been playing with. Yet to be strung on their own length of yarn.

I've defined them as urchins, as the humble sea-urchin shares its resemblance.

sea-urchin noun
any of a group of spiny, marine animals with a spheric shape and a shell made up of many calcareous discs.

These are gorgeous! Love the contrast of the loopy thread to the paper. Delicate and tough, busy and still. Very nice. - maude

Thank you ladies! Your compliments are humbly accepted.
You can spot some rolling about at "Heaton & May" in Olinda.
Urchins, and all sea skeletons are so very beautiful.
Cheers xx
