Felt Sculpture

Wool to Keep you Warm
Needle felted wool and Serpentine
Carrying on with the Renaissance woman theme, here is a little sculpture, solid wool, no armature.  In total she measures about 25cm tall.  There is something very tactile about wool and the polished serpentine.  These take quite a lot of needling to create and this one has gone to a good home.

What a wonderful thing. I can't imagine how you made it. I love the contrast between serpentine and wool.

Tried to work out today why I was drawn to this sculpture. Wool is a wonderful material for representing humanity. Traditionally we go for marble or bronze but wool is soft and impermanent and those days of early motherhood are so fleeting.
