Sonya Philips, Pods.These come from explorations with hand knit silk covered in beeswax. There is an alchemy in combining these two insect secretions. The luminous golden color comes from the the process of heating the wax and silk and the reaction of the seracin, the glue that holds the cocoon together, still present in the yarn.  Round or elongated, their shape echo those found in nature.

Linda Le Pard’s theme of “Empty nester” consisted of several suspended weaver bird nests made of net, paper string or knitted tubes. I particularly liked one made from delicate cobweb felt, above.
