Felted pods with copper metal leaf
This piece, made of nine handfelted little pods, is an expression of the effect of time on crafted objects. Made with wool and copper metal leaf, they represent objects from the distant past and how time has affected their appearance. The effect of time shows differently on each one. Wool texture, representing nature, contrasts with the copper metal leaf, representing man made. The different type of wool used allowed me to bring slight textural differences and variation in colour.
Materials: wool and copper metal leaf
Technique: wet felting
