Urchin Beads

Still working on the Sea Urchin inspired piece. This is the last of the beading.
I chose the clear beads so I could focus on the form/texture rather than color. I think it might be interesting to try something else with emphasis on color but for this piece I wanted simple. I have a tendency to try to stuff 85 ideas into a single piece of work so this time I thought I would make an effort to NOT do that.
The heat set forms draw the attention in and as you get closer the smaller bead shapes become visible. It is tactile and sculptural but subdued... I think I like it.
