This lovely 'Northern Lights' Artwork is the result of a lucky experience that I had on our last trip to the Highlands. The colours were simply unbelievable and what the camera picked up was a delight to see too! An amazing light show that I've now hopefully captured in wool. It's taken me a long time to complete this little beaut as I had to get the colours just right. I hope you like it!
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 13.5cm x 8.5cm
The overall frame size approx 22.5cm x 17.5cm
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 a few commission landscapes too. Just let me know through the contacts page on the website if this is something you fancy doing. The possibilites are endless!
