I set about making a final piece more meticulously this time, conscious of the potential pitfalls.

I wanted a smooth stitched interior that has an ominous sense of being drawn into it. I set this first then stitched it.

I stitched the Seneca quote onto a strip of quite raw bleached cotton cloth, that i placed on the end of the funnel. I then put another layer of gesso’d fabric over the outside with rolls and folds to give an uncontrolled feeling.

To combat the problem of the bottom of the funnel I created a smaller card cone that I inserted at the bottom before this last stage.
