Vines with Thorns

Click here to go to the index page...

 Long strips of ribbon in various shades of brown and green are tied with smaller pieces of ribbon to look like thorns on a vine. Four of the vines with thorns are twenty-four feet in length and four are thirty-two feet in length. I created this stage prop for Christian Academy of Dance for their 2007 spring performance called The Forgotten Fruit. Christian Academy of Dance is located in Killingworth, Connecticut.

Twenty-four feet of shiny brown ribbon make up this vine.  It is tied with smaller pieces of brown ribbon knotted to look like thorns.  Small washers sewn inside a piece of foam and then sewn to the ends of the ribbon give the vine some weight to make it easier for the dancers to handle.  This is a close up view.

These vines, twenty-four feet in length, are made from shiny brown and green ribbon.  Smaller pieces of matching ribbon are knotted onto the long strips to look like thorns.  Each thorn was tack sewn and glued to prevent it from falling off.  Small washers sewn inside a piece of foam and then sewn to the ends of the ribbon give the vine some weight to make it easier for the dancers to handle.
