This neuron is the second round from a much earlier embroidery that was never completely satisfied with the outcome.

I started with the leg of some worn out pants. This gray would prove to be a good choice when I decided to make this a functional artwork and not a wall hanging.

The pouches are made of recycled cotton and come from Dick Blick. They come in a handy variety of sizes, but only the gray color.

My starting point embroidery.

At some point I’ll revisit the synapse concept, but for now the marvelous structure of a neuron works for me.
