Needle Felted Marine Life ~ Needle Felting Realism
These fabulous needle felted sculptures come to us from Joshua Gardner of Los Angeles, California.
Joshua shares that his works are “inspired by realism in art, and a fascination with wildlife.”
We really appreciate the photos showing the scale of the felted animals, they are impressively large for needle felted art!
Joshua incorporates a variety of fibers into his needle felted sculptures, and completed all of these pieces with a single 36 gauge felting needle … really.
Joshua shared that he “learned a lot about the anatomy of animals while trying to capture them in a realistic sculpture. i love that needle felting is an additive process with endless possibilities.”
He tells us that his next big project is a life-sized lions’s head….and he is using Living Felt MC-1 Felting Batts for that. We look forward to seeing it and sharing it with you all!
