Some 3-D doodlings
Just to show I have done *something*...
As told before, I will (at most) weave samples for something that is to be done in Februari - preferrable something with a little volume. It has to be hang from one end, and be at most 10 cm deep.
The first I thought of was three layers with offset layer-crossings, something like this: (don't mind the colours, I have to see/understand what I'm thinking, structurally, at first)
Then I realized it would "collapse" to flat, when hung. So... could the layers all have different lengths, perhaps?
Tried to modify the idea, still drawing on the 'puter, came up with this:
(not a very good drawing, but...) And realized I would need three beams. Perhaps the third could be rigged up, somehow?
Other possibilities, same basic idea - and only two beams: one straight middle layer, two longer outer:
Now I have yet another idea: just two layers, the middle one "interesting", the other just making soft curves. (Another bad sketch... think black for the straight, white for the curvy)
Somehow, the layers will have to be joined at the top, but could be left hanging at the bottom.
Probably there will be more thinking long before there will be any weaving...
