Spray of Urchins

The sea urchins have been placed...


Nestled amongst some seaweed found...


Getting cozy with the skeletons of sea-worn shells...


And be-friending a family of barnacles that have quite an attachment to a pretty scallop...


Their attempt to take some of the spotlight away from their nine-armed neighbor has begun...


Sea you next time...

Amazing....simply amazing. It's fun too to have seen your shells and then recognize them once again in your piece. And yes...the battle has begun !! I'm smiling to myself waiting for the next jaw dropping addition. Hugs !!

Wanda-Maria Roszak said...

Susan, my friend, the silence of you are here and create your beautiful work of art. Because they are beautiful along with your talent and you, greetings :)))

Cathy Lloyd said...

I'm with Cari (who is my sister BTW)! Love the urchins and can't wait for the next jaw-dropping edition!

Flavia said...

Stunning!

gracie said...

I knew I would love it. I grew up going to the sea shore back East...loved finding shells and things....

Kathy said...

I think this may be my most favorite of your pieces (so far).
How did you make these little guys? They look similar to a pumpkin pincushion, but I can't figure out how you made the mouth opening.
Gorgeous already, so I'm really looking forward to the finished piece.

Oh my gosh! These urchins are 'the bees knees'. This piece is so wonderful. You are one talented lady, who knows no bounds.

Mary Ann said...

I was totally in love with your starfish but I have to say that urchin corner is looking very sweet:)

Oh, don't fool yourself, those guys know there are no stars here, but a team of entertainers.

I seriously thought the sea urchins were real until I spied very closely and finally saw your beautiful stitching. A perfect vignette of shells and seaweed. Stunning Dear...

Allison Aller said...

Oh Susan...you are like a novelist spinning your own realities for us to savor, only with stitches, not words!

verobirdie said...

I love this piece. Simply stunning!

Heather M. said...

Sharon, this is beautiful. I too, am curious as to how you made the urchins and wondering if the sea weed is real. If not, how did you make that?

Heather M. said...

I can't believe I called you Sharon. My apologies. My excuse is that the person who posted before me is Sharon and I must have had that stuck in my head!

Judy S. said...

Love it, Susan! The way you've included real shells is very effective although one has to look twice to determine what's "real" and what's not. Wonderful stitching...as always! Bravo!

flower friend said...

Wow! I'm in awe at how beautiful this is looking. The word serene comes to mind when I look at it.

Starr White said...

Susan, this is so very beautiful! I too was fooled by the sea urchins. I had to look very closely to see that you had made them! My jaw dropped, and I literally let out a little squeal of delight. Beauty makes me happy. Thank you. Keep it coming!

Inspiring work and the sea urchins are just like what I have on our shelf from AK! Love your work and what an inspiration for all of us.

Already the panel is coming back into balance, and it's a great combination of the found objects and the stitchery.

nelda said...

You are such an inspiration! I look forward to watching you create and place the items that will bridge the gap between your lovely show stoppers.

Nicki Lee said...

Hi Susan, It's all been said -AMAZING!!!!! If you were to write a book with all your creations being the subject(s)and your beautiful photography, I know for sure it would be a TOP Best Seller...I'm already standing in line... I can never get enough of your fabulous work.

Wendy said...

Just lovely! This spray of urchins is just wonderful. I love all the texture and those stones peeking out of the centers of the urchins is just too sweet. The seaweed is a nice touch as well.

Anna said...

Lovely Susan! I like the balance counterpoint that you've created and all the shape and texture is wonderful. It's great that you're willing to share the step by step progression of your pieces.

Jane said...

The sea urchins are fabulous, I like them even better than the starfish.

elmsley rose said...

ooooooh! The piece is looking SO good! You Textile Artist, you!

Catherine said...

As with each of your pieces, I am trying to figure out what else you can add/do to add it, and before I can even begin to imagine it ~ bam! You've done it! Have a Happy Fourth!! Looking forward to seeing what your family does to celebrate this year!
