Shape of the Container

Sometimes I get a little carried away with the material and then overlook the actual theme of the lesson and this is a very good example of what I mean.

The container is one of my favorites, because of the fat squat round form and a very unusual opening that looks like the mouth has been torn. Because of this shape it allows easy placement of the material without too much support mainly direct fixing.

I have used Cordyline leaves, burnt Banksia and Oak leaves. The arrangement falls more into Tonal Colours with a variety of textures rather than what I was supposed to do. With all this material the viewer can not appreciate the shape of the container – whoops, I will listen next time.

Maybe one day you will see the true shape of this container.
