Wool sculptures of animals [Copy link] 中文

Many years ago I discovered the art of needle felting. When you needle felt, you stab wool fiber repeatedly with a very sharp, barbed needle. The barbs of the needle felt the wool into shapes and thus you can sculpt it!

I love this medium because the wool is warm and organic in my hands and I find, it adds "life" to my animals all by itself.

I used to paint for a major animation studio where I spent many, many hours a day painting on a computer in a dark room. While it was a fun time, I now treasure sitting in my studio, in the light, working with my hands in a completely different way.

I do not strive to make my animals look 100% realistic (they are made of wool after all). By trying to capture the individual character of each animal, my sculptures appear realistic. Sometimes I get angry emails from people that are upset because they are convinced I am sending baby bunnies through the mail! (from boredpanda.com)
