New Fiber Pieces Coming Soon!

My latest fiber collages are starting to shape up!  I work in steps to create my art, moving from printing the backgrounds to bending and pounding wire and thinking about words and quotes that interest me.  This week I've been needle-felting small shapes from wool (generously donated by my sheep!).


These juicy fiber shapes will soon be combined with hand printed papers, wire, and of course...words!

 

Soap In A Sweater

I have been having fun creating more "Soaps In A Sweater", and hope to have them available in a local business soon!  These are made by wrapping wool roving around soap and then wet felting the fibers to the soap.  The result is a decorative soap that creates tons of lather and gently exfoliates too.


Wool Roving and Soap - Soap in a Sweater begins!
