Coiled by Pamela Zimmerman for Dolores Gatz

Coiled by Pamela Zimmerman for Dolores GatzPam managed to fine a gourd with a great stem still attached. The stem added the greatest line of grace to the overall shape of the entired piece.

The gourd looks like she dripped brown and black and twisted the gourd so that the drips would run all over. Then she coiled a stand for the piece to ly on on the side of the gourd. (Another thing I've thought about doing but haven't tryed yet.)Coiled by Pamela Zimmerman for Dolores Gatz

She continued the towards the stem and around the neck of the gourd to the rim. Between the shape of the gourd and the wrapping of the coil around the gourd has created and undulating coil that I've hear some of the rest of you mention in your pieces. She left some graps in the coiling going up to a final rim at the top of the piece that she rolled back down.

Not only do I in general love the twists but I feel the wraps added additional lines to grace of the entire piece. Pam must enjoy challenges in her life because if it wasn't enough to keep track of the gaps and twists. She stitched in seeds alone the way.
