This is my 'piece de resistance'. The yellow is star coral in Bonaire Antilles and the spiral shapes are Christmas worms.

and this is my interpretation.
This piece is called a pseudosphere. It is done in an ever increasing spiral form in a multi-color thread and finished with a gray mohair picot stitch. It was the first piece that I made for the exhibit.
This one is meant to look like a bleached (dying) coral.
And this one is made from multi color green, dark green, and glitter green threads.
A tall piece made to look like a dying coral. I mixed a thin black mohair with a thick white yarn to get the effect. A black pseudosphere sits on top.
Some free form shapes that I made to go into the bleached reef. I used different textures of white yarn and thread, holding multiple threads behind the work so that I could vary the texture at random as I built the piece. I love the little tammy on top of the tall one.
