"Cleanse and Exfoliate"
deconstructed mesh bath poofs, security ties
My goal with this piece was to create a vessel with a “sudsy” appearance.
This piece is made with deconstructed bath poofs & security ties.
The material, when taken apart, made an exciting fiber for coiling.
I made many “pods” which were like mini- baskets unto themselves.
Connecting them was the challenge.
Ultimately, I "sewed" the pods together with security ties.
As with many of my pieces, the compartments all contribute to the whole. The security ties encompass and unify the vessel in a flurry of translucent "fibers" that are almost irresistible to touch.
The bead-like sections of the ties evoke the feeling of water droplets spraying from the core. The effect is fresh and whimsical, like a sprinkler in a springtime garden.
