Artful Felted Sculpture

Felt Sculpture by Betsy Ratzsch featured on

What an artful and unique sculpture Betsy has created in this monochromatic palette. The doll is 14″ tall. The base is core wool wrapped around 3 pipe cleaners, and the design is MC-1 Felting Batts.

“The colors are just very restful, like watching a carp swim slowly around in water. The tail actually replaces her arm but i can’t tell you anything about that! Just an intuitive thing. My clay figures were taller than the felted pieces I saw being made so I had to figure out a way to make them tall but not fat. Working horizontally did the trick. The inspiration for the carp is just that I like them. They are so graceful and amazingly hardy. Their whiskers are cool too.”
