Water and Fire - Felt Art Poncho
This Water and Fire Felt Art Poncho tells a story. Water and Fire, two of the four basic elements, interact and create lots of sparks and splutter. To express this, I used organic merino wool, silk threads, silk fabric and wool yarn, dyed with natural dyes.
Have a look at the beautiful play of the orange red, purple, brown and green.
The movement of the flames is enhanced by hand and machine embroidery.
