Happy Sleepy Striped Orange textile sculpture gif animations

Striped textile sculpture spinning on a striped background.
Form spinning in and out of alignment with the underlying pattern to mesmerizing effect.

These animated gifs show a Happy Sleepy sculpture in progress. The fabric has been cut, sewn, and stuffed, and the last step, the eyes, are next. In the meantime, the photographic opportunity of the pure form and remaining fabric irresistible.

The color is day-glo orange and impossible to photograph, especially because the cotton fabric is very smooth and lustrous. In the late afternoon sun in our studio, the colors simply glow.

The fabric was purchased on the trip to Japan in 2013 and is one of 3 fabrics in the set: the others are white and yellow and white and pink stripes. All three are going to be in the shop soon.
