Well, here she is! The completed spider for my nature trail site specific sculpture project, to go with her web. The real fun starts when I try to install them both next week.
She’s made from garden wire, sticks, hessian, garden twine and black matt outdoor paint. If anyone is interested in how she was constructed, leave a comment below and I’ll post photos of the different stages.
Carole, that is horrible, horrible, HORRIBLE! I think you need a health warning before showing that picture. *shudder*
Sorry, Beth! I must admit, she keeps making me jump when I catch sight of her.
Progress photos, please! Because I hate spiders, but THAT one is cool!
And what is hessian?
OK Ryan, I’ll do a full post soon.
Hessian is a rough, loosely woven sacking material. It frays beautifully when cut into strips.
