Soft Felt

July 9, 2009


Vessel cSilverThreadsShaping is much more complicated than my naïve mind perceived.  I am pleased with the foot even though this photo does not clearly reflect its elegance; nonetheless the rim is far from a site for sore eyes.  One might perceive the artist had sore eyes when shaping it but I was unaware that I need to have it resting on a support while it dried.  Perhaps I need to build a support or just full the felt stiffer.  I had great anticipation for this vessel as the wool felted nicely inside and out with thin silver threads hugging the exterior.  The wool fabric is yummy mohair and lined with violet New Zealand wool.
