Shadow Shot Sunday

Flowery shadows-can you guess what they are cast by? This is the first time I have bought something just for shadow shot Sunday!


It is from Greenwich market and was so cheap,


but contains so much work. It is a mystery to me how it was made-so clever!


And a good use of string I think.


A circular string mat of intricate woven flowers.


If anyone has seen one of these before, or knows the technique I would be interested to hear.

Both the shadows and the original "art" are exquisite.

WONDERFUL NONSENSE

A shadow’s a wonderful thing;
O listen! Can you hear it sing?
It tells of a time
Before there was crime—
Trust that and you’ll trust anything!

Mmmm, I think you're straying into macrame territory there! Lovely shadows. It's rained for a week solid here...

Hey, that's a beautiful mat, not least because it produces amazing shadows! Have a good week. Ros

Fun flower shadows. I like the nice textured white wall as well.

Very pretty - I would have said macrame too, but with raffia.

This string design is very cool.
I wondered at first whether it wold be raffia.

Such vile weather here in NY
Hope it's better in England!
