Needle Felted Whale & Calf – Stunning Felted Sea Life
Sue Stasiowski recently shared some of her brilliant works of art felted with Living Felt wool.
This jaw dropping mother whale and calf are like none we have ever seen. The brilliant use of color and contrast keep the eye moving and truly bring them to life. The whales each have a thin wire armature from the nose to the tail. They are mounted a piece of found driftwood, and the sculpture is 11.5″ high x 25″ long x 18″ deep.
Sue shares that these whales “were great fun to make. The whole piece took about 2 months to finish. The whales were started with core wool and then different colors of the Merino-Cross Batts were layered on top of one another until I achieved the look I wanted.”
Sue uses Living Felt CW-1 Core Wool, MC-1 Felting Batts, New Zealand Corriedale and Merino Top. She writes, “Thank you for all your wonderful wool. It’s a pleasure to work with it.”
Also by Sue, and featured previously on our blog was a graceful needle felted dolphin and this incredible blue heron.
