New & Experimental Work.

Once on a path of felt exploration you start notice things you didn't pay much attention before - unusual objects, shapes, color combinations - all in relation with felt making.
As the time goes by, your curiosity is growing. 
What will happen if I felt this in, or with this, or use chosen fibers, fabrics to create certain effect? 
It is always magic, always something new. Not that you always like it but it is never the same. 
This is a beauty of felt - very live textile form.

This is my dog Eddie's toy


what if I play with it?


and play more




I am not sure what to do with it. It could lead to something else eventually. 
As long as we feed our curiosity with trying something new, and do something new - life goes on.
