This piece is connected to design because I used several design elements when creating my piece. The first element I used was color. I chose a red ombre yarn to wrap the sticks in. I loved the smooth transformation from dark to light when I bound the sticks. I also think the color change made the piece more dynamic and interesting. The second element I considered was texture. I choose and textured yarn for my piece. The soft textured yarn juxtaposed with the wood makes an interesting combination.   Finally, I considered depth as a design element when creating my piece. Laying the sticks on top of each other creates depth while mimicking a pile of sticks one may see in nature.
