Short and Plump
Here's a short and plump tower. I'm seeing I can use lots of different colors and shapes with these. I have several ideas for chimney type caps or toppers. And I could make some of these square or rectangular as well. While I was looking at this one I thought about stepping the flattened coils and really emphasizing the steps, spiraling them on the way up. I can imagine myself spiraling them and pushing that shape to the limit of where they will hold together. How far can I go before the shape fails. Even still, if the shape fails what could it become. Funny how something simple lends itself to so many variations. I'm off to St. Petersburg today, so I'll catch up with you later. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.
