|Morgan Gesell, Naïve American, 2011. Lawn chairs, synthetic sinew, string.|
I'm almost done with the standing lawn chair. Spent several hours creating the web out of synthetic sinew. Here are a few process shots...
The little dark thing is 5 washers, original to the lawn chair, that I beaded into the web.
I really like how it's looking, but I'm not totally thrilled with that gaping oval in the center. I would love to continue the webbing tighter and tighter but it's becoming nearly impossible. I'm going to see if I can problem solve tomorrow. I'm also planning to add more feathers to the bottom. Starting the webbing on the folded chair tomorrow!
