As the gnome requests are filled, and having now made hundreds of the little playful wool fiber sculptures, the playscape became an important design feature to develop. To offer a one of a kind landscape for the gnomes to play in has become most enjoyable as each are so unique. The playscape initially was to offer a safe place for the wool sculptures to play without distressing the fibers too much. Some playscapes that feature a cave entrance as shelter for the gnomes and woodland friends, are designed to hang on the wall as art when not being engaged in story / play time – the cave becomes a pocket for little felted friends to sleep. The mushroom circles and houses are very popular and a joy to make. I am now designing a tree stump house that folds out and will act like a portable toy when all closed up. So exciting – when complete will post pictures :O) find more on my instagram account under artistleahwilson.
