New Sculptural Nests

I am working on a few new nests.

The nest below is made from the decorative ribbon used on furniture. I had a huge amount of it donated and am using a hook rug technique to adhere it to the chicken wire frame. I have not cut or damaged any of the pieces in the construction. 

This nest is made from mailing tubes. I am currently using old yarn to tie the poles together. It is a labour intensive task.  

This nest is made from old couch springs. It is really intricate when viewed up close. It is complete. 

Again thanks to Market Mall for donating the space for the construction of the nests for the Children's Festival.
