Russian fiber artist Grisha Dubrovsky makes needle felted sculptures, big and small. He is clearly influenced by nature and fantasy, playing with scale, and juxtaposing danger and humor. I’m also taken with Grisha’s ability to subtly create so much emotion from the faces and body language of his work. Here, take a look:
I think this is the artist himself being terrified and dominated by his own artwork… occupational hazard, amirite?
You must see more of Grisha’s work on his website. Go!

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!
