Beaded Felted Vessel


Felting vessels has become a real pleasure. I guess they could also be called soft sculptures. Most of the work is in the felting itself, but I also love beading so some find their way onto each vessel. The round felted beads (from Beth Moore Beads on Etsy) are adorned with different kinds of Czech glass seed beads. The felted colors go all around, shown in the bottom photo. This is 4-1/2" in diameter and 3-1/2" in height.

Love it! I have a friend who felts vessels. I kind of like calling them 'soft sculpture' myself. :)

Thank you Barbara, your message was so enlightening. I like that you've brought the ying and yang into it.
I never thought of this. We've been telling ourselves all along. Thank you for helping me to see this! You are deep too! :)
