objects and shapes

Attending an online textiles course [and in particular a section on soft sculpture] has got me thinking about forms and shapes and sculpted things. About how to make things 3 dimensional, and how to bring to a picture to life by giving it substance. 

At the moment, I have a struggle between what I want to make and what I actually do make. The ideas I have don't seem to translate into sculptures. 

But then I notice a previously crocheted bit of fabric curling around into a shape, looking a bit like bark peeled from a tree and I am inspired all over again.
