Filigree drawings in 3-d

When I recently scanned the garage, or rather shed, for useful items to reinstall my studio in Hull I came across these webs. Fortunately I resisted a first impulse to wipe them away - they were somewhat in the way - and realized how intricate and beautiful they are.

Underneath the webs I found loads of chipboards, moved from Basel to Hull ages ago - in fact it's 12 years... These boards now shield the wooden floor in my redecorated workspace from future activities. And yes, I managed to remove the boards without touching the webs.

Another asset is that much of my equipment, loom included, is now on wheels. One of the things I learned in Marion's studio in Berlin is, that it's soo handy when shelves and stuff are movable!
