Vendor Biography

Wet felting is the area of fiber arts that has captured my attention the past few years.  Previously I have worked in basketry, but am finding working with soft wool to be another dimension in fiber art.  The process used in making the objects you see in my shop begins with wispy washed and combed wool from sheep.  Objects are made by using soap, water, and repetitive motion and manipulation of the fibers until they bind with one another to form firm felt.  As the felt forms it shrinks and gives lots of surprises in the finished product– one of the intriguing and enjoyable aspect of the work.  Silk as well as other fibers and fabrics can be added to the objects as the felting progresses allowing for interesting surface textures.
