Rain Vessel- Part 1

Wrapping the resist in layers of merino wool...


                                          ...and adding paper design elements.



                                       Cutting raindrops from handmade pre-felt...



                                       ...and placing them under the paper ones...



                                                 ...for a bas relief appearance.



                           Applying paper that contains the text of a favorite poem...



                                            ...and wrapping it to the second side.



                                                         Finishing the layout...



                                             ...and beginning the felting process.



                                         Next time: the vessel begins to take shape.

Can you explain the text technique ?

Teresa--This technique was originated by Fiona Duthie and consequently, I'm not at liberty to share as I normally would.
Take one of her 'paper, ink and felt' classes sometime. I know you'd love it!!

It sounds really very intriguing!

Rachel--It's alchemy (Fiona's a felting wizard!!) :)
