If I were you I'd end my days in a field of stupid sheep just grazing the grass, so succulent and sweet
Before Christmas I had some felted pears and bowls in Craft Act's 'Exquisite' members show. Along with some sales - still a new enough experience to be a thrill - this lead to a commission as well. Based on the work that was in the show, I was asked if I could make a different shape, a beaker, to fit in with a specific collection.
I was given some photos and suggested dimensions. I made a few as it was a new design, and to provide some choice of colour and shape - some are tapered and others are straight-sided. Luckily 'slightly skewed' was explicitly ok - felting is an imprecise science.
And two of them now live in this lovely collection.
