deep sea dweller

on the floors of the earths oceans are hot thermal vents that support a myriad of life forms -- one that has most interested me are the tube worms that inhabit these areas-- this piece is an interpretation of this life form -- made from handmade paper rings and jute wrapped with carpet warp tipped by handmade paper-- thus emulating the worm(wrapped elements) and the protective tubes that house them(handmade paper rings) the piece is 31inx25inx3in
