The Warrnambool Wrap "Felt Pelt"
Unable to find a model with time I've resorted to the one that can't move. I bought this at an antique auction and it really is falling apart. It needs some shoulders to show this well but it will have to do.. The first pics are the preliminary work of the wrap before the final dye. One learns many lessons on the samples you take away from a workshop. I learnt a valuable one WRAP VERY TIGHTLY. It all ended up very orange and the more subtle parts were lost. Luckily I spent many years as a potter and have learnt the art of moving on and not becoming too attached to pieces. India's piece of London scrap has played nicely on the front leaving an interesting mark from the hinge. I've called this one the "Felt Pelt"
