Wet Felted Sculpture using Finn wool and Flax fibers. Approximately 7 x 12 inches.

This piece was made using the ‘mud effect’. Layers of wool are laid out, and then masking tape is laid down to create a resist. More wool is laid out over the entire piece, including the masking tape.

The piece was then wet felted, with the masking tape still inside. (The masking tape keeps the wool on the top and bottom of it from felting together, which is why it’s called a resist.)

Once the wool is felted and turned into fabric, cuts are made to reveal the masking tape, so it can be removed and leave surface openings where it was laid out. No sewing is involved in the making of this final piece.
