Wrapped and ready

Cynthia Tinapple extruded canes

The weekend was filled with mixing colors and building canes. Instead of sitting stunned and overwhelmed on the first day of my next conference, I thought I’d prepare new canes so that I can get in the groove quickly. These canes, built with extruded triangles, are ready and wrapped for traveling next week.

Some artists have a vision of the end product when they begin a design but I simply ride the wave of inspiration and see where it takes me. Here’s how a few of my previous canes were used (1, 2, 3, 4). I wonder where these will end up.

This project also served as Internet detox. I stayed away from the computer all weekend!
