Folksy :: Buy "Newspaper yarn art - framed"

Shared by zygotegifts in the Paper Crafts

Product Description:

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.
