Felt and Shadows

When I picked up my wool in November from the Vermont Fiber Mill, Jon bought a pair of the felted shoe inserts that they make from their llama wool.

They were too big, so I trimmed them and then had these uneven strips of thick felt.

Not being able to throw something like this away, I soaked them in water and reshaped them, thinking I’d eventually come up with a way to use them.

Today I brought them into my studio and put them on my ironing board.

As I was working I looked up and saw the shadows from my windows panes that the sun was throwing.  The shapes seemed perfectly placed within them and I took this picture.

It felt like a collaboration between me, the felt, the sun, the shadows, the windows and the ironing board.
