a good poem
The world is never the same once a good poem has been added to it.
— Dylan Thomas (1914–1953)
My first 16-point kiku herringbone flowers, layered in two colors (each has 8 petals). I left off the obi and made the ends of the ends of the petals uneven (falling both above and below the equator for each flower), asymmetrical, so that the larger flower at the north pole meets the smaller one at the south pole at "random," varying points.
Thread wrap in ecru; S16 division (north – south lines only) in metallic silver; embroidery in dusky antique lavender and medium silver gray. The quotation by Dylan Thomas is in the bell box with seven brass rings. Circumference: 11.5 inches / 29 cm; diameter: 3.66 inches / 9.25 cm. Completed 23 September 2011 (no. 031).
