This was a two different experiments - both of which sat unused and unloved until I figured out that the two pieces went together! When I was twisting and knotting the fibres, I was asked "Why" and "What for" until I was sick of hearing it. People tell me it "looks like the ocean".

This really reminds me of the time my husband were out walking one of the beaches near Toffino on a trip we took. It was a cold, windy February day and it was pouring cats and dogs. The sky was grey, the sand was grey, the rocks were grey and the ocean was a roiling grey mass.... this piece reminds me of the ocean on that day. Fantastic!

Lovely- it also reminds me of the ocean- one can feel the breeze and smell the salt.
