Re: Guess what this is?

Nice one Brian. Hmm what is it?
How about some sort of old fashioned lampshade?...or on a different tack it almost looks like some form of spun sugar strands?

Is it an orange in a net bag? For orange, read any orange coloured citrus fruit

Hi there Brian!

It looks similar to the cleaning sponge I have for getting the flies of my motorcycle visor - sponge inside a soft nylon net bag.

The white highlights look like crushed glass particles. I'm going for a fancy glass knife handle (end on) or some other glass object (eg light pull).
