The Textile Center has an annual exhibit inviting any members of the Textile Center to show some of their work. Usually it's only one piece per artist. The really nice thing about it is that it is not judged.
The container has a fiber landscape all around it using fabric, mesh, beading, and thread painting.
The fishing pole is a dried Echinacea stem which is really sturdy. A good thing since it has to hold up a giant fish!
(That fish must be all of 4" long)
Every time new fabric gets used in my studio, the selvage gets cut off and wound around the ball.
It changes colors every time I take the time to add to it.
