Artist Statement: As an art educator who teaches sculpture, my interest in transforming limp fibers into sculptural forms intrigues me. This work is from a new series that is combining investigations into shaping fibers into form and a new interest in creating felt. Embellishing my work with beads has been a love I’ve had for many years. The fourth form in this series, Nesting, reflects a layering of textures and fibers creating a soft nest. The form is created with 3 layers of hand felted wool and silk, which are nested together juxtaposing different colors and textures. The interior of the sculpture is detailed with wool clippings. The edge of the nest is hand beaded, adding a textural contrast and a place for light to linger.
Techniques and media used: hand felted wool and silk, and bead embellishment.
At its widest points, the sculpture is 9″ w x 4″ h
