Vessels are an ancient form designed for function as a holder of objects. I approach the vessel as a holder of possibilities. Each one is unique and a story unto itself. My vessels start with a theme; sometimes just a simple color story or perhaps something more complex, such as pond life. The exterior and the interior each have their own story to tell. The vessel is formed by layering wet wool around an object (usually an inflated ball) and building up the vessel from the inside out. When all of the layers have been added, I cover the wool and start felting it with warm water, soap and my hands. The felting process itself takes around 4 hours. It is then rinsed and reformed and allowed to dry. Embellishment is added after the felting process is completed.
