Prima Ballerina

A coiled one-legged table. While the traditional wooden turned leg is made by subtracting material, the prima ballerina’s leg is made by adding material, coiling thread around a pole. This surprising combination produces graceful structures, with soft textured curves. With this technique, endless number of leg versions is possible, made in different shapes and of different threads and colors.

This reminds me of winding bobbins on my sewing machine.
