Distort Sculpture 178

Salvaging remnants from a 70's basement box find and wools from a fundraiser sale. Had thought I might give this a test for hot water washing machine felting but once complete the decision was made to leave it as is and do my testing on something else.

Distort # 168

The inner core of this piece is a spool that is from a 1967 Toronto mill. One of those things someone (like me . . who may have tendencies leaning towards the hoarder) who hangs on to . . "perhaps too" many things as a potential for further use . . .
