Holes in bowls

Question from Judy..
I am intrigued by your wonderful bowls, Anna! I make bowls using the sewing machine, but have not tried any with gaps or holes. Do you have any references you could share on how to create these, or are they your original designs?
to answer your question - the bowls with holes are my original designs - self taught and sadly as at present I am selling these would rather not share how the holes are made.  Just note there is no fabric in the bowls only thread!!

Bowls and cuffs

Been busy making more bowls - lots with holes in :-

Then I moved on to making bracelets, cuffs :-)

I was looking for one of those Crohns awareness bands (the rubber ones) and could not find one I made my own!! - it is purple

Holes and spikes

Difficult to take pictures - this 'bowl' vessel is still small - diameter 2.5 inches, height 3 inches.  Red, green and gold thread.  Holes and spikes:

To answer recent comments...

Hi -  Threads of inspiration - no there is no wire in the spikes - it is just the cord stitched - and the cord is still all in one piece not cut and joined in!

They are still very small 2 - 5 inches and may grow as I enjoy this more

Hi - Karin - thanks for the push !  In my head there are holes and spikes on 'normal' bowls to start with but more demented shapes may follow!!

Thanks for your support ! x

bowls - again

Forgot to show you the other recent bowls:

Bowls - with holes and my Boro jacket progress

OK so its a little obsessional but today I have tried my first small bowls with holes :-)

The one above only measures 2 inches in diameter and 1.75 inches  in height.

I have cut out and joined my Boro jacket - now the long process of hand stitching begins.

Edible Delights - my cooking experiments

People who know me well know that I hate waste - not only in textile art (I use up every scrap) but also in general.  I love to cook and I use up every bit of the fresh ingredients I buy - I rarely buy pre made meals etc.  I am also a Pizza-holic :-) I have decided it is time to record my foodie experiments so have created a new blog rather than filling this one with food - if you are interested pop over to Edible Delights - my cooking experiments by clicking here.

More bowls - including 2 sets
