We were asked to look at spirals in man made structures. I wanted to display my work in a different way for this module. I had used display books for Module 1, and bound my work for Module 2 using a comb binder. I designed this display stand - it is made of MDF which I have painted turquoise. Each page is suspended on the two side rails. There is one centre rail at the base to give the stand stability. My tassels are displayed on a spiral stand and my buttons and toggles will be in a box. The lid of this box will be my resolved sample.
The stand is made from cardboard tubes, with a wooden base, painted turquoise. The orange top is made of paper, spiralling round into a ball shape. The tassels are hanging on wooden craft sticks, which I trimmed to various lengths, notched, and dyed orange. The sticks spiral up the cardboard tube.
