This art wallhanging entitled ‘About the door’ has been felted by hand and exhibited in France in a Felting exhibition in 2017 ‘European Felt Days’ .
It is inspired by the doors of Provencal France, with their history and architectural uniqueness.
It represents how time and nature change everything. Nature in the form of sun and wind, affects these wooden doors to achieve intriguing textural effects.
I built this door piece by piece by using handmade prefelts created with carded wool, silk and lacy fabric.
The idea was to show the linear textural and colour effects.
Technique: Wet felting, needle felting, free motion machine embroidery
Materials: carded wool, lace, silk, lace fabric
The back has three little round hooks so it can be hanged easily. It is very light.
Size: 69 cm H x 48cm W (27 inch. H x 19 inch.)
