2016 has started off with a few new felted friends sporting more complex color layering concepts to give a bit more depth and development of character. Using wool and other natural fibers of different softness textures gives the item touch-ability, like the hint of silk fibers on that soft bunny belly. Inspired by cuteness.
Making Wool Felted Owls is so rewarding, what a joy these compact little birds are. Each is so different yet so much the same, it all starts the same… a ball, some wings and tail feathers…. the little details really pop – loving the color combinations and simple expressions and powerful cuteness.
These images are from the latest photo-shoot at Flickering Goddess in Crawford Bay, B.C. – Instagram account: artistleahwilson follow for more felted emporium updates:O)
As a multidisciplinary artist who is sculpting wool, photography and the art telling story through media really came to life with this new project:
Motorcycle Meditation Maintenance and Amazing Owls
Enjoying the spring weather and taking the amazing gnomes with me where ever I go. Taking photos and making social media content with them has become a bit of a fun adventure. Taking walks and driving a bit further down the road to get the interesting settings or just the right light – has been amazing and really sparking my interest in the media arts all over again.
I love how people are enjoying the gnomes, coffee shops are the funnest so far – the reaction people have and the interactions the gnomes have with the environment – always a photoshoot with the beans – and always a candid shot with the staff – so fun! For more pictures check out my instagram series under artistleahwilson. Its all about the gnomes :O)
There are a few pictures from the drive home… more fun and amazing gnome moments to follow, stay tuned.
