Wet Felted Tree Vase
Sammie Choy of Hawaii has only been felting 4-months and created THIS magnificent and innovative work of fiber art.
Sammie shares, “This was felted around a resist, then shaped on a glass vase found in a second-hand store. The heavy base and ridges running up the neck of the vase made me think of a tree, so I tried it. The resist was a little taller than I might otherwise have used, because I knew I would want the extra height to cut the branches. Felted with merino wool. It was purchased as a gift for a woman who works in forestry and conservation.”
The vase is still inside the felted piece and the idea is for fresh cut flowers to emerge from between the branches…brilliant!
