This piece, The Dry Stone Wall, has been created using my own reference photos and my imagination! I live in Derbyshire where dry stone walls are part of the landscape and I often spot little owls on them (which was what inspired me to start this picture).
If you look closely at the picture you should be able to spot:
A Little Owl
A Grey Dagger Moth
A Murder (of crows!)
Some barbed wire
A spider web (no spider!)
And a rather large stinging nettle.
This is a felted picture made entirely from wool. It has been created using a combination of wet felting and needle felting and will be 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
The finished picture has been mounted and framed in a glazed box frame. Overall measurements are 70 x 63cm
