Rose Hatcher

This bright and textural image of the Mill at Sturminster Newton has been felted by hand, using merino wool, silk fibre and handspun wool and silk yarns.  There is no stitching and no needle-felting involved in this process - all the components are bonded during the wet-felting process.  The trees behind the Mill are dense silk and glisten in sunlight, as do the silk highlights on the water in the Mill Pool.  The picture is mounted in a deep box frame and appears to float between the mount card and the glass. 

Felt panel measures 50 x 37 cms.  Frame measures 62.5 x 53.5 x 3 cms
