This month, I’ve found something a little different to share with you. Felt is the most amazing material because it can be used for just about anything, and here’s proof: a stop motion fiber art film! It looks like Spacebaby and Moon are partially needle felted, but regardless of how exactly they were made, it’s great seeing fiber used in this way. So, without further ado, I give you “Mooon” by James Kwan.
Make sure to check out the artist’s Tumblr too: http://jamesgoesexploring.tumblr.com/
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.
What Technique Is This?
Needle Felting is the process of using a notched or “barbed” needle to compress layers of wool into denser felt that can be manipulated to create 3D sculptures. It is different to wet felting, which uses water to combine wool fibres, and these days there are a range of felting tools available that can enable you to make your own soft sculptures with ease!
