The salt marshes of Morecambe Bay

My attempt at a large bowl which flopped so was made into a dish but which is still a bit floppy so I may just flatten it or frame it as it is.

It took absolutely ages to make but I learnt a lot about what I could and couldn't do with the fibres. I twisted and pulled the rocks up and placed old thimbles under some to keep the shape. I think the closeup shows a little more detail as these pictures are rather small.

Hi ages later and I am back again.
I think the shape of the dish is great. If you want stiffen it there is a thread on stiffening in the wet felting section I think. of the forum. Hydrolack seems to be the favorite of hat makers. Keep up the good work.
