New work for the New Year
With the next generation of my family at the stage of getting married and having babies, I've wanted, for a long time, to create a family heirloom, in the way that my mother crocheted a multi-coloured afghan square blanket for my son.
Using machine-made prefelts in merino wool, I've laid out a throw of geometric shapes and am very interested to see the interplay of colours when the overlapping blocks felt together.
A scarf of silk chiffon animal print, hand felted with merino wool for those cool Summer evenings (measures 175 x 16 cm). This one is a gift for J.J.
If you would like to order one, email me.
