Have you ever looked outside in the evening just as the sun is going down, only to find an amazing array of colour? Well this view was one of those evenings when I was actually quick enough to grab my camera and flick a pic. Literally a few minutes later these beautiful colours had disappeared into the night sky. Another reason why I just had to capture such gorgeous colours in my merino wool. The shades of purple and orange were a sight to see over the bay in Scotland.
What is it made of and how big is it?
Each picture is handcrafted using a backing of felt, various sizes of giant felting needles and of course Merino wool.
The actual image approx 9cm x 9cm
The overall frame size approx 16.5cm x 16.5cm
Frame is in White (FSC Certfified) and has both a hanging hook and stand.
So why Merino Artwork for Dunnknit Designs?
Merino Artworks have always been on the cards for Dunnknit Designs from the very beginning and I love having the opportunity for a short time each summer 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, so just let me know through the contacts page on the website if this is something you fancy doing. The possibilites are endless!
