602 Swirls

The grand total is now at 5964 with many more to come.

I have also started messing around with the idea of mixing some swirls with some old paintings.

This, of coarse is a completely temporary work as I do enjoy dismantling the swirls after I have spent hours, some times even days organizing them into obsessive little patters.

The Return of the Swirl

So it has been some time since I last made a swirl, but I am glad to say that new swirls are on the way. I met my goal of 5000, now I'm making it 10000. The good news is that I am already half way there. So now I give you 350 swirls, putting the new grand total at 5362 only 4638 to go.

Now that I have reached my 5000 swirl goal I can just sit back, relax, and try to figure out why I made these in the first place.

One too many swirls

It was St. Patty’s day and somebody had one swirl too many. My friend here has had a swirl problem for quite a while now. I think it may be time for an intervention.

Day nine

644 swirls

All of these swirls are of the same dimensions. How exciting is that.

This now brings the grand total to 3175.

Day eight

It's really hard to believe that there are 268 swirls in this pile. They all fit into my hand.

So far the total is up to 2531

Day seven

It is a little known fact that on day seven when God rested he liked to make swirls from copper. He said it was good for his wrists. I only made 374, it was a slow day.

We are now at 2263. It sure feels like a lot more.

Day six

Salvaged swirl day. There are 90 of these recovered gems. Remaking a swirl is often more work then making one from scratch. A lot of these were the survivors from the wicked fire of 2005

I think the total is now up to 1889

Sunday, March 12, 2006

Day five

1010. yup. over a thousand swirls in this pile. I have nothing more to say on this subject.

Day four

500 wild and crazy swirls. bringing the grand total up to 1789 swirls

Friday, March 10, 2006

Day three

289 0f these bad boys. Most of the metal I use for these is really hard, so they don't make the full swirl, but they still get a mention.

As you can see some swirls are larger then others. I am currently just using up all the little bits of wire I find laying around the space ship.
