I took a great class from Suzy Nonn and this was my take on it - the name is "Zany". The Class was called Hairy Weaving on a Gourd. I love the space-dyed reed she dyed. It took me a long time to figure out how to paint it and to get the top curls anchored. Guests in the studio actually argue about what it is and, of course, I love the attention it gets. What do you see?
