Rising

This is a small piece that I made for next week’s exhibition.

The idea, in case it’s not obvious, was to show a phoenix rising from a dying fire. It’s a Merino wool wet felted background onto which I’ve needle felted and then lightly wet felted for a second time. I’m not one for drawing but the beauty of needle felting an item like this is the ability to remove anything which isn’t right, or that you don’t like and then have another go.I’ve really enjoyed treating them as fluid line drawings, maybe I’m finding a liking for needle felting after all!
