Bag making turned into bowl making

As you can see it started out as a bag, complete with handles and ties.

Unfortunately, the opening I created was just too large and there were just no sides to it, so I felted and I felted to create a smaller opening.  Using a metal spoon and a wooden spoon, I created ridges.  These have been held in place with pegs, the base of the now vessel has been hard felted with the help of a glass.

In order to hold its shape, I have wrapped sari threads around the base and the top.  It's now waiting patiently on top of the boiler to dry so, some time in 2013, it might just be.  (Too mean to have the heating - it is May after all).
