Felted Botanical Vessels

Large, wet-felted, round vessel by Kim Buchheit.
Tall, wet-felted vessel by Kim Buchheit.
I just completed this large, round bowl and added a second layer of stiffener to the tall vessel, then had them photographed this week. The round vessel is approximately 12"(h) x 17"(diam.); the tall vessel is 24"(h) x 7"(diam.).  This work is a continuation of a series entitled, "Botanical" which utilizes pre-felt cut-outs along with Merino top (100% wool). The round piece will be available for sale at the upcoming Flag Wool & Fiber Festival with some of the proceeds benefiting the event. The Festival is hosting several fiber arts workshops the weekend of June 2-3, 2018, including my 1/2-day Vessels & Votives workshop where you'll learn to make mini versions of the round vessel pictured above.
