You know when you have an idea and you just have to do it - well I had one of those moments last night! I was browsing flickr a couple of days ago and I spotted a wonderful felt piece by lilfishstudios done in a glass jar. I got me thinking. Initially I was very keen to try something very similar and knowing how much the Finns love their mushrooms I probably will pursue that project another day. However a little seed of an idea came to me and after a few scribbled drawings and a google search my project was born. Geology in a jar - basically a cross esction of the earth starting at the core nad moving up through the layers(although not to scale!) ending with a luscious green filed complete with grazing sheep.
It was odd needling inside a spaghetti jar and I have a very sore thumb knuckle from bashing against the side but once I set to last night there was no stopping me.
I took a few photos this morning and learnt that photographing glass is a nightmare.
Thank you lilfishstudios for your idea and inspiration!
