The versatility of wool is incredible. Not only flat pieces or wearables can be made but a 3D subject is dorable. My friend asked if I'm keen to explore in the field of wool felt. I said I deep buried in the experiment. I hope to create not only a piece of craft but an art piece would be my expectation. Today is hot but I image the white wool is snow that keeps me cool. I do wool felt all the year round.
I made this sculpture.
朋友問我老遠跑去學羊毛氈工藝可會專注在這方面的發展, 我說這是興趣, 羊毛實在是可塑性甚高的物料, 我要發拙這不但是冬日衣物的材料, 也是立體雕塑的好物料, 今日雖然酷熱, 我仍很享受製作這立體瓶子的過程, 幻想那雪白是冰雪不就涼快麼 !
I used merino wool, raw fleece from Viltalakim and my own dyed silk scraps, also a sea shell.
Layer of wool.
These curly locks are wonderful to work with.
The brown texture is nuno felt of silk scrap.
The other side a sea shell is enclosed.

I rounded the top with some air roots of bayan tree.
Can be a vase.
A plant holder.
Or an art piece?
Whatever it serves.........
it's something I love.
They're proudly displayed in my house.
