LAB3_Make

The copper wire is sewn into the body of flax. It is a live wire. The current runs down the leaf and electrocutes the fibers. The material is changed from a smooth leathery surface to a messy nest of strands.

 

This item is a 'fascinator', it is fashioned to be worn as a head decoration, in place of a hat.
