I have been working, working, working in the studio recently, and will fill you in on all the details but in an effort to get back into the swing
of things here, a few playful pictures of one of today's projects:
Using different breeds of sheeps wool in balls and layers to create this awesome surface texure. Felt upholstery? Carpets? Art? Overdyed? So many possibilities. This illuminates in a most interesting way also. This is one of a series of trials I am working on, expanding my repetoire of surface design elements in felt. I didn't expect the mounds to stay quite so pronounced.
This has East Friesian wool on the inside, and Blue Faced Leicester wool on the outside. Just a small sample for now....
But I'm looking forward to more... I'm quite taken by their perfect round and fluffy forms!
I'll be right back (at least in the next day or two!)!
