From Rocks to Rugs

During the summer I felted pole wrapped and shibori dyed several pieces of wool and dyed them in reds and orange.  The intention was to create truly wearable art out of the center and use the edges to create a rug/art for the wall.

When I had enough fabric edges I places them on a 4x6 felted wool rug mat and began running it through the FeltLOOM several times.

It was exciting to see the piece on the wall in the gallery along with five other amazing fiber artists.  A review expressed concerns.  Some I agreed with, others not so much.  However, being a writer I realize that it's the conversation that ultimately matters.
