Assemblage of the more natural variety.

I hosted an Assemblage art swap on craftster because it is an awesome artform and I wanted to see what me and others could get up to with that sort of theme to run with. I definitely tend to gravitate towards more rusty, grungy assemblage projects, but my partner Wulf mentioned loving nature inspired assemblage and I felt the muses telling me to try that way. I did a lot of looking at pictures, googling Andy Goldsworthy (check him out!!) and taking long slow walks around my neighborhood. It was a challenge and refreshing and here's what I came up with...

I couldn't keep the rusty urges out completely, but I think the small bits I added compliment it well. The yarn weaving was another thing I added in that felt organic and...just fit right. I definitely want to do more stick weaving for myself. I think it looks so beautiful and organic.

I also made another piece that is quite a bit larger but it got too "flowery" for my liking...not to mention its rather heavy being mounted on a piece of plywood!
