This is a piece that I was photographing for my portfolio and thought I would share it here. The assignment for the piece was to simply make anything that did not resemble something in the world. This one gave me a lot of grief (it is surprisingly difficult to get clay to fight gravity) and had it fall apart completely about 4 times during the making/drying process. Unfortunately, the glazing got messed up, but structurally, I really like this piece.

In a weird way it makes me think of a game of Twister.
Awesome job!

you are so right about the gravity, haha! i am impressed that it fell apart and you still got it to hold together through the firings. i quite like the glaze color, what was it supposed to look like?

when i read the subject line it got me thinking about the doctors office and how they have toys for little kids there and how they always have the toy that has all the wires and wooden beads that you move around, then thinking of that mede me think of your piece again because of how the pieces wind around eachother =] so long story short, i see how your piece links to the doctors office, even if its not how you intended  Grin

Haha no, that's definitely how I intended it. My original plan was much more ambitious with the knots being separate and they could come apart but that was a massive disaster so when I stuck them all as one unit my friends and I all thought it looked like one of those wire and bead toys at the doctor's office. Hence the name.
