Studio Series: undomestic hanger 1

hanger 1 is a common wire hanger (the kind that you'd get from the drycleaner) that I wrapped with a lifetime of textile trimmings, commercial quilt binding, shoe laces, and yarn. Naturally, after I made this piece, I needed quilt binding for another project and I had to make it from scratch.

Don't you think that the hook part looks like a bird head? hanger 1 is solid and heavy.
