New Bowls Inspired by Old Work

3 new felted bowls 85/15 wool/mohair. A friend of mine noted how much my bowl designs look like a painting series (sample shown above) I had done a few years ago... wow, I didn't even notice that. Interesting how we have these symbols from our visual language appearing over and over again in our work throughout our lifetime. ~ Kim

Front and back view of latest felted bowl. I'll be posting more bowls tomorrow. Just need to add some roving applique to them (that's the fun part ;) ) ~ Kim

While not quite ready to open our respective Etsy shops... Beth and I are working toward this goal :) Here are three bowls (85% wool, 15% mohair) I've just completed. Beth will post some of her lovelies soon. ~ Kim

Nature-inspired Bowls

Latest felted wool bowls inspired by nature. The organic, mushroom-like "growths" inside some of these bowls (top) and the roving "seed pods" on the outside of others (bottom), make for more tactilely pleasing pieces. I also like the idea of having the outer design curl over the top of the lip and inside the bowls, which you can see here on the grey bowls. ~ Kim
