Deconstruction

I've been looking at this bottle for a year now. I made it last summer as one of a trio of vessels, and it has never been just right. I mean, yeah, it is a bottle made of naturally dyed silk, neat, but...blah.

When considering how to begin another piece that is a shelf-scape made up of fabric vessels, my eye fell on this bottle, hmmm.

I think what it needs is a niche in it, right about...here:

After taking the bottom off so I could get my hand inside, I carefully took out the stitches so I could tie off all those loose ends inside. 

Better already:

It is exhilarating to jump in and change this! I'll have to make some kind of a support for the niche, and what will I line it with...
