Newspaper yarn art - framed

Newspaper yarn art - framed
Love this


Newspaper yarn handspun from newspaper by myself - a unique and interesting gift for your or a loved one's wall!

Part of the "Good News from Bad" collection:

The newspapers are full of bad news. By spinning these stories into yarn and using words taken out of their “bad news” context, bad news is spun into good – art and ideas!

Each piece is unique and signed by the artist.
6 inches square (internal measurement of frame)

The piece pictured is called "Evolution" - The winding of the newspaper yarn is reminiscent of the helical structure of DNA. Other ideas inspiring this piece include the explosion of many species from a common ancestor, the common building blocks of life, the common basic body plan of so many life forms, the gradual introduction of small changes in DNA causing larger changes, and the evolution of consciousness, maths and geometry. The four circles represent the 4 basic building blocks of DNA.

**Only 1 of this piece available ** Others will become available very soon and commissions are welcome....especially if you would like to use newspaper from a special day e.g. a wedding or birth - a further charge for custom newspaper will be added.
