The making of... stress

The feeling stress is partly made on the couch and partly made in my studio. For a few evenings, I roll little spikes that I keep in a container. When I have enough, I apply them to the base of the feeling. I start out with holding the feeling upside down and carefully place each spike next to each other in a bit of slib. When I nearly reach the top, the feeling is too heavy and delicate to hold. Then I place it onto my turning table directly onto a kiln shelf. That way I don't have to move the feeling anymore as it's superdelicate once it's finished.
Once 'stress' is fired, it's very firm and sturdy and it's a fun feeling to touch. :)
