Knitting Samples - experimenting with mixing materials, size of stitch and pattern

Initial Sampling

Looking at simple organic shapes, layering and transparency using a fine coated wire and circular knitting

Series 2 - Experiment with Materials

In this series, I have tried out various materials, using appropriate techniques. My intention is to restrict the materials used in later Series, in order to concentrate on form but at the same time add an element of uniformity.
I have taken a very basic modular shape of a cone and sphere joined by a short tube, as exhibited in Specimen 6 of Series 1.
