I'm posting this here because it was for my senior show for the visual arts program at my school. I took the idea of the hanging hemp light....and ran with it. My concept was the idea of home, and the silent role of the home maker. It was called 'making home'. I wanted to explore the different aspects of home, the fragility, the warmth, the memories, and the accumulation of stuff. About $200 worth of hemp, 3 bottles of Modge Podge, 4 months, and countless nights of wrapping balloons, it has come and gone. I just got around to uploading pics because I was busy graduating (finally, after 8 years!) and being unemployed.  Smiley So now, on to the photos.

I'm very glad it's over. There are some embroidery pieces in there as well, but I wasn't as pleased with those, although everyone else seemed to like them. I'm so relieved to have done it, seen it through, and all the research that went into it really broadened my horizons. What an experience!

Wow, there are some amazing pieces in there and congratulations on a successful show.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

Thanks. Everyone was really receptive to it, and frankly, I was nervous because everyone else in the show was doing paintings and other elaborate "fine arts". But it all turned out well!
