I have looked longer and pondered the photos of your work, and have made an observation: Your dream catchers are far more substantive than what is the norm. The typical dream catcher is a frail and fragile thing... designed to catch but a hint of whimsy. Yours are kestrels on the hunt: beauty hovering in the air yet ready to pounce. Indeed, your designs are, for lack of a better word, aggressive. These are the catchers made by someone who cannot be caught. Thus they are great art- dichotomy displayed; a teasing game of, 'catch me if you can' played on an oval wicker canvas. Bone, be wary! For you may be nesting with a most deadly spider!

These are beautiful, SlingCatcher. Intricate indeed! Can't wait to see you work one into a slingshot design. That's going to be amazing!

For those of us that dream about slingshots, this is perfect! I applaud your work!

Yet I wonder... would you be able to to make a functional slingshot that incorporates your weaver's dreams? THAT would be epic!

Lovely work. Have Bone send me an email. I have something sketched up that needs his CNC and your dream catcher skills. No Internet at the house right now but I will send it his way Monday.

That will be my next project. I've got some ideas and have to her together with Bone on the design.

oh yeah, Thank you for the compliment.

Well the Holiday Bazaar that I've been making all my dreamcatchers for us this Saturday. Wish me luck.

once that is over I plan on getting out in the backyard with Bone and start some practicing instead of just talking about it all..... .. pictures and videos will follow once I get started.

Happy a holidays to all

I can't remember if I showed this one.... my Hippy one. Lol
