Dream catchers have always fascinated me.  The geometric shapes created by the intertwined string, contrast against the circle that they are created in along with the feathers usually found attached to the bottom.  This is what inspired me to create this piece.I wanted to abstract the dream catcher shape.  I took the geometric shapes of the strings and placed feathery geometric shapes on top to create depth.  I decided to abstract the feathers to be more linear than being an organic feathery thing.  Resulting in a piece that doesn't even resemble a dream catcher anymore.
