This is a selection of my work.  All items are of my own design.  Most items are entirely hand sewn with virgin wool yarn. Each is made from recycled wool fabrics and virgin wool fleece (direct from the sheep & shepherd).  I also use needle felting and traditional wet felting techniques. I rarely use glue. Zero-waste is a central principle to my studio - all waste is recovered and used in the production of new items.  Some items are available as ECo-Creative kits, which are also packaged and designed for zero-waste. 

We need beauty in our everyday lives/everyday stuff, but right now beauty needs to be sustainable, and I don’t believe art or craft gets a “pass” in this regard.  So, each interior core of the embroidered balls is formed from 100% recycled wool scrap from the studio - no plastic or styrofoam!  Labor, love, craftsmanship, great design + sustainability = work worth doing & art worth creating. Please, respect the fact that I own the copyright to these items, designs and images.  Email me with any questions or for permission to use them.  Thanks!
