For this month’s column, I’ve selected some of my favorite fantasy felt artwork. These are some of the most imaginative needle felt creations I’ve come across, full of wonderful detail and expression.
“My Arm Can Fly” is the work of artist Sarah “Wolfie” Strub. She creates one of a kind fantasy monsters like “Flox” and “Dream Snake” above. I love the integration of clay and mixed media into the felt sculptures. You can find more of her work on Etsy, plus some excellent process photos on Tumblr and Facebook. Links at myarmcanfly.net
Above are works from “Soranokobako” by artist Mamoru. My particular favorites are the curly-haired birds and unicorn pig! I only wish larger photos were available to see more of the detail. More at http://soranokobako.blog.so-net.ne.jp/ (in Japanese)
“Fluffy Fuzzy” is the work of needle felt artist Veverka. Her fantasy creatures are inspired by animals and nature. I’m completely charmed by the sweet smiling face of her “Garden Gnome”. For more, check out her Etsy shop: https://www.etsy.com/shop/FluffyFuzzy
As always, I hope you’ve enjoyed this month’s installment of Felter Skelter!
