It seems to me that working monochrome may be a little more challenging, because it’s texture, shape or structure which need/s to make a piece stand out/interesting.
I am not sure if my assumption is right, but I have noticed people who like/wear/buy felt often like colour very much. Also, felt which is with a lot of pattern and colour seems to be very popular. As I gravitate more towards simple and less colourful look I sometimes wonder if there is a market for such felt.
I work with felt because it’s a natural material, if it was eg. acrylic I wouldn’t. To me natural materials, fibres, wood, stone etc. have inherent beauty, they are beautiful even in their pre-processing form.
I have made the two felted bowls as samples for a felting class. I didn’t expect I would enjoy teaching so much, plus it is helping me to look at felt from a different angle and most of all get back to felt making after my detours to other techniques.
