Cat lovers rejoice! This month I’ve rounded up some fabulous felt felines! Last time I wrote about felt cats, I featured some of the most hyper-realistic examples of what needle felt artists can do. This time, I’m taking a broader look at what makes an excellent felt cat. In this month’s column I would like to introduce five felt artists taking a unique approach to cat art.
Lizzie Pearce (lizzieneedles) decapitates vintage ceramic figures in order to give life to her sculptures, both feline and otherwise.
Anna Babenko (Jellyfish Handmade) creates custom felt dolls that have a very classic, timeless appeal.
LenaVi makes handmade wool felt fashion accessories inspired by the warmth of cats.
Ika Gabriel (Ika Style Design) will felt your cat’s portrait onto a sweater!
Masayo Kitajima (gooteachan) makes incredible cat clock faces, mobile phone cases, and more.
BONUS CAT! Forgive me for including my own work in this roundup, but I have a brand new cat sculpture that I wanted to share with you! He is currently on view at BeinArt Gallery in Australia as part of The Cat Show, featuring cat-themed artwork by an international lineup of contemporary artists. See the show online and in person through the end of the month!
