On opening Pattrizia’s page I was immediately enchanted by her stunning creations, and I spent an age studying each one, the attention to detail is overwhelming, the skin tones, expressions, body lines, fingers and hair in fact everything is just perfection and a true work of art.  Patriza’s an artist and sculptress lives and works in Italy and her blog (which is understandably in Italian)  the pictures alone tells the story. Follow this link and you will see for yourself work in progress along with finished work. PatrizaCozzo

Felted Art To Wear Morning Glory Corsage Giveaway

I recently met Inken on face book, and when I popped over to her page amazing felted wearable art  just burst off her page with  stunning colours and vibrancy. In her own words Inken tells us how her craft evolved. 
My name is Inken Gaddass I am a German born felt artist now living in the heart of England. I grew up in Schleswig Holstein North Germany an area of open farmland combined with a coastline that is full of empty beaches, warm in summer and ice covered in winter. Using a variety of wet felting techniques I create 'Felted Art To Wear', unique and quirky, sometimes abstract, in the form of scarves, wraps, shawls, vests and jewellery. 
 My felt art is heavily inspired by the coastal wildlife and nature of my childhood years, the alternating and ever changing moods of the sea combined with the myriad of colours from endless fields of blooms in summer. I always loved working with wool and I was fascinated by strong and rich colours and different textures. About 10 years ago just after I moved to the UK I came across a beautifully felted scarf which I fell in love with immediately and I got curious on what felt is and how to make such a beautiful piece and it all started from there.
 I bought books, magazines and I searched the Internet for information about felting and taught myself the art of wet felting. Felting opened new doors for my love of colour, pattern and textures in a natural form combined with a quirkiness and uniqueness that is wearable art. Felting is like painting with fibres and an amazing process of transforming  loose wool fibres into the most beautiful textile which is unique and beautiful and in tune with nature.
 Felting makes me happy and I can't remember the last day I was bored. I can't just sit around not doing anything. I am always creating whether it is hands on or in my mind thinking about the next project. It just seems as if I've found my craft.  Inken xxx
