Gut Level!


I taught a class this year at Artfest called Marvelous Membranes. We focused on using hog gut, or sausage casings, as a covering for steel (iron) wire structures. Everyone had a unique experience and most loved working with it. We had a wonderful group of people who were definately troupers to try such a weird medium. These were objects laid out to dry. I was snapping photos so fast I lost track of who made what in some cases! I think these were some jewelry pieces Terese Wix was working on. And some delicate earrings with beads inside by Tonia Davenport.
