For a successful process there is a need for a good system. I've learnt that doing things in certain order and following certain methods I can achieve maximum productivity.
I believe that the structure of puzurs proposes balance and harmony in everyday life and successful design work relies on this also. Another reason behind making puzurs that I hadn't mentioned before was the sustainability factor, using natural materials like reeds to demonstrate creative process. As well as for my booklet, the choice of recycled paper.

I feel I have finally reached the finish line, as I've done all the calculations on how much more straws I will need, to make my puzurs 35 cm diameter. It will be in the form of upside down pyramid. I decided this to reflect on my learning process – progression through the time.
Starting from just one crystal that builds up into more and more complex layers reflecting on the knowledge I've gained.
The puzurs will consist from 91 octahedrons and 1092 pieces of straw.

It took me again a lot longer than planned to print my booklet.
I had already bought extra paper sheets for all various errors of printing. Getting this double-side booklet printed and folded to work as perfectly as possible, without sending it to professional printers was a result of lots and lots of prints and tryouts.

Discussing the puzuri making process I think I need to admit that the actions were a repeat of the same procedure over and over again. For example like cutting straws that seemed like an endless job. But I'm happy to come to the point where I can see the whole structure finally coming together. And put a full stop to the cutting process.
