To kick off the new year, I give you the wonderful work of Sarah Mandell, aka Once Again Sam. Sarah is a multi-talented artist and needle felting is only one of her many talents. I discovered her work recently thanks to a feature on the blog Gorilla Glue and immediately fell in love with her miniature cactus gardens. The arrangements not only tiny and cute, they are exquisitely crafted. The variety and attention to detail in each piece is fantastic.
Zoë Williams creates needle felt sculptures based on spirits, sacred creatures, and dreams. Her work is concerned with the intersection of the (inner) realm of the collective unconscious and the (outer) kingdom of nature. She lives and works in New York City.
