Iris is a Highland Cow who used to live in a field near me - she has been the model for many of the pieces I have created. This one started off as a commissioned piece but my client wanted a slightly darker, more brooding piece (which I created), so this piece is now available. Iris is shown here in the wind with grasses blowing across her body.
This is a felted picture made entirely from wool (plus a few threads). It has been created using a combination of wet felting and needle felting and has been professionally framed in a glazed box frame. Photographs really do not do felted work justice - this is a really beautiful and unique piece of art.
My felted artwork is exhibited nationally and has won awards at various exhibitions.
Please note, this picture has been made entirely with wool (and a few silks or Angelina fibres) - there is no paint involved and no glue. I build up the picture using tiny pieces of wool and then it is the process of wet-felting that binds the wool together to create the picture. Because of the process involved, this picture can never be recreated and there will be no prints made of it. Who-ever buys this will own a completely unique piece of work
