Having explored my least favourite textures, the felt itself isn't visually as successful as I want in invoking the sensory heebie-jeebies. So have been revisiting my notes and ideas. Really does feel a bit masochistic, especially rubbing unglazed porcelain together. Argh! I've got an idea that could be a winner but it involves a bit of out-sourcing. More on that as it happens! Happy sensory bits in the second word-piece, I promise!
Finally, for this brief update; I thought you might like to see a page of my notebook - note the references to things that some of you kind readers told me gave you the nails-down-blackboard shivers.
