If you have never visited Luskentyre Beach on the Isle of Harris, Scotland, you definitely need to and if you have visited then you'll fully understand what I mean. With its white sandy beach and clear water, it is simply stunning, especially on a sunny day when the sky is blue. I have taken so many photographs of Luskentyre and this is my favourite view that I simply had to capture in my beautiful Merino wool back in the studio.
What is it made from and how big is it?
Each picture I create is handcrafted using a backing of felt, various sizes of giant felting needles and Merino wool.
The actual image approx 24cm x 19cm
The overall frame size approx 33cm x 28cm
Frame is in White (FSC Certified) and has both a hanging hook and stand.
So why Merino Artworks for Dunnknit Designs?
Merino Artworks have always been on the cards for Dunnknit Designs from the very beginning and I love occasionally having the opportunity to combine my Fine Art and Textile experience to create these unique pieces.
I love to work outside where possible but often work from photographs that either I've taken on my travels or my amazing photographer family members have taken. I'm so lucky to have a few contacts who kindly send me such beautiful photos and I've worked on commission pieces too. Just let me know through the contacts page on the website if this is something you fancy doing. The possibilites are endless!
