Precarious Balance

20 1/4" w. x 39" h.
Inspired by a chair balancing act I saw at the Shanghi Circus, this is the second piece featuring by my polymer clay work. This also uses mokume gane technique in the clay. Rectangle shapes similar to the clay shapes swirl around the clay pieces, and the extensive machine quilting echoes the same swirling shapes. My hand dyed cotton fabrics are used. Machine pieced, machine appliqued. Beads attach the polymer clay rectangles.
