Ocean Colours Marbled Bowl, Hand Felted
This felted bowl is hand formed from New Zealand merino wool and embellished with hand dyed silk fibres with a colour gradation from green through to blue.

The opening of the bowl follows the edge of the silk fibres giving an organic, undulating edge with a delicate white rim. A cutout, again following the edges of a gap in the silk fibres adds additional interest.

The surface of the bowl is slightly textured which, together with the form of the bowl, is reminiscent of the kina or sea urchin shells that we sometimes find on the beach

PROCESS
Wool fibres are first laid out in 5 layers around a flat resist and the silk fibres are added over the top. The fibres are then wet down, felted together using soap and friction and hand manipulated into a three dimensional bowl.

If you are keen to see how it's done, check out my time-lapse video of a bowl being made in my shop profile - if you've never seen a bowl felted before, it may blow your mind so hold on to your hat ;-)
