Who remembers String Art?
It was a popular craft back in the seventies and eighties. I must admit that during the late seventies I had at least a couple pieces of it hanging around my home. There was a large ship and a piece like the blue & white circle design below.
Here's a few kits I found for sale on Ebay. The ship is vey similar to the one I had. As I looked at samples on the internet I noticed that owls were very popular subjects for string art. My favorite piece was the hummingbird ~ and I even found it on Ebay. But I think I'll have to pass on bidding on it. I think string art is destined to remain a "random memory" for me!
Here's a photo of Bill and his Dad taken in 2005. It was in my father-in-law's mobile home down in Florida. In the background you can see a peek of one of the two very large string art pieces that my in-laws had in their living room. They were each about 3 x 5 feet and they were geometric patterns designed and built by my father-in-law in 1970 while General Motors (he worked for them as an electrician) was on strike.
