The wooden frame is built in the Japanese style, with uprights of wenge and a platform of curly maple. The "fabric" stretched on the frame is knit of five different navy-blue yarns of different weights, finishes, and textures with openwork to show off the properties of the various fibers; blue "oil-slick" seedbeads make up the beaded-glass fringe, and larger similarly iridescent ones connect the side pieces trimmed with strung "fur" and sparkly balls.

Size: Roughly one foot square.

Price: $350/NOT FOR SALE, similar concept may be custom ordered
