Encouraged by some of my impression experiments with paper clay, I decided to highlight the indents were the string had been with gold leaf. This accentuated the marks and also makes them more precious.
Having a new ball of hand spun paper yarn made previously from handmade wrapping paper, I crocheted a small new bowl.
Using paper clay I covered the bottom and half of the sides and left it to dry.
When dry I poured some water into the bottom to make the yarn soggy and carefully removed a section of the crochet leaving an impression of the crochet within the clay.
For me the paper represents memory as it is in life, the impression left in the clay represents the new changed memory residing with loved ones. still precious and special but different, changed.
