Flora & Fauna


 


Needlefelted charmers 
The plant and animal kingdoms are natural wonder-worlds, with gifts of food, fiber and medicine. Plants are as a vegetative “fur” of the whole Earth, and offer a glimpse into the unfolding of  time, as we observe the cycles from seed, sprout, stem, leaf, flower, fruit and seed. The animal world livingly depicts motion and emotion, while the insect world hovers as an octave between the  two.Needlefelting is the main technique used to create the plants and animals here, and a somewhat realistic image aimed for, but overall, an expression belonging to that animal or plant is the main  aspiration.Mobiles can be made, and of course, the flora and fauna items make wonderful accessories for gnomes, sprites and elves!
