livewire hung vertically

This was my experiment with doing several tight wrappings on the pole, skipping several inches, and wrapping again. This piece is actually four yards long; here you see it hung vertically by the midpoint. I also put the silk on the pole at a diagonal, and I did not fold it. Instead I scrunched it together to fit the width around the 4″ PVC pipe.

While I like how this turned out, I am frustrated with the color. The overdye bath lasted an hour and was done in an extra-strength dark brown solution. No, really. Dark brown! oh well…
