Experiments with Shape and Structure

After making my first hat last spring, I was intrigued by the creases and ridges created when a finished felt piece is steamed and then pinched repeatedly along a line. Felting a trio of small vessels allowed me to work small and still explore some new ideas.

Each vessel was made with a different shade of grey handpainted merino from handsandnotions. I have intentions of returning to this form, to continue exploring more shapes. In the meantime, they sit filled with no purpose, no expectations.

    You mean no purpose other than to just be. And add beauty to the house.

    I really love the look and shape of these! Art doesn’t need a “purpose”.
