I’m not really sure why.

I guess they evolved out of some circular weaving I was doing.

Which evolved from a disability craft group and the great stuff that they did.

Essentially I fell in love with the round mandala like form. It was effective in providing a structure for the materials I was working with and allowed me to stay present with the materials and see how they would evolve. I also welcomed all the historic, cultural and spiritual associations with circle that came up as I was working. Sometimes a globe or a planet, sometimes maternal, sometimes very deep and spiritual, sometimes cake.
