Needle Felted Sculptures Perched on Vintage Bristle Brushes and Cameras

Artemis Fibre Art is a brain child of Di Haswell and Jane Christopher. It was in 2016 when Di bought a little needle felting kit to try, and while watching tutorials online she stumbled across Sarafina's videos. It was then when she discovered her passion and was addicted to needle felting. This ladies duo uses only a pile of wool fiber, pointed needle, and some wire to create magical creatures.

I heard somewhere what sparks life into a piece is the eyes and these ladies have nailed it. They specialize in expressive eyes, instead of glass eyes and clay noses the features are 'painted' with wool. These finished sculptures are perched on delightful vintage props such as cribbage board, bristle brush, cameras, spool, wooden blocks or small boxes. 

The sculptures are available through art and craft fairs, and local galleries. Their sculptures are collected by art enthusiasts all over the world. They have created ornaments for well-known brands including Anthropologie. The one-of-a-kind sculptures are available in their online store.
