Artful Felted Sculpture

Felt Sculpture by Betsy Ratzsch featured on www.livingfelt.com/blog

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.”
