this is the beginning of a "set"/installation that i am making for a piece my friend rebecca rabideau has choreographed. a tangled harvest of forms that are simultaneously animal (internally and externally referenced)and vegetable (being fall, i'm thinking of heartier varieties of root veggies and perhaps an appearance by an artichoke?)

i keep going back to this embroidery scratching post thinking someday it will be "done". i like the back side as much as the front side. i like seeing through it and getting the texture of the hair and stitches as much as i like the shimmer of the nail polish spots on the peacock -like pattern (which is ..of course..not all that visible when back-lit).
stitching on silk, crocheted hair, nail-clippings,unraveled scarf, cut-up crocheted gloves, white pencil, beads, wood stain, nail polish..
