…and they shall be one

Oneness is a beautifull detail in a marriage. The two might be opposites and yet make one. There might be areas where they have not many things in common and yet make a whole because they meet at those points which join two halves in one unit. And where they don’t there is still love to join them together.

I have had this theme on my mind for quite some time and am happy I had found a form to express it.

The bowls are now listed in my shop.

  1. such an interesting way to felt. i’ve never considered wrapping a ball before. the result is lovely. i have to say i think you are very brave to microwave the ball…aren’t you afraid it will explode?

  2. Thank you, ladies, for your kind comments!
    Kristin, I have read somewhere that I can microwave wet felt…, but I see you are unsure about the ball. It was a foam ball, the pink is just painted on the surface, it is not the rubber one. And because it was drenched with water and covered in layers of cold and wet wool I wasn’t afraid at all. After 30 seconds it was tepid, hoter at the bottom only.

  3. That is so loevly, I really like it. It makes such a great box. Did it take long to make? Definatley an Etsy product there and you can put me at the top of the list for one….please!

  4. Joanna, you are cute and kind :)! Thank you. Yes, I hope to list it, but I am still thinking if to stiffen it or not. It is not floppy, it keeps the shape without my help, but… Today I stored some just cut off buttons in one of the bowl and it looked good.
    I think it would be a lovely wedding gift, with little quotations about love, marriage… It took long, cca 3 hours not including washing and drying. But also because it was the first one. I was very carefull and in control of the process. oxo

  5. Congrats ont making such a beautiful bowl! I love it!

    hi,
    Thanks for visiting.
    This is n response to your post on my blog . Shibori and batik are two
    distinctively different techniques. Batik creates patterning by
    covering areas with molten wax and then dyeing. The wax covered parts do not
    dye as the wax acts as resist.
    Shibori on the other hand encompasses different ways of stitching,
    binding, pleating and folding to create resists that form the patterning.
    The cloth is then dyed.
    More than you wanted to know? 🙂 🙂

    best,
    Neki

  7. this is amazing – it’s perfect, I think, the way the concept is expressed by the form. It looks as if you had been felting for years, not days!
