The color palette of ‘Thing Three’ called for a whimsical design. By the time I finished the loops, it became clear the only way to make it complete would be the addition of a horn in the center, reminiscent of the Dr.Seuss characters, Thing One and Thing Two.
Coiling is a technique using fabric and/or yarn to cover rope, rope becoming the core. While covering the rope I continually use the fabric to connect one row to the next. In making the continual connections, the piece becomes firm and acquires the desired shape.
