Needle-felted Bears (24)

Website   Facebook   
   
Hi. My name is Marina.
Once upon a time a clot of soft and tender wool fell in my hands, and all of a sudden I started making felted toys. I must admit that this process reminds me of clay modelling, layer-by-layer one acqires volume, creates shape until it's all finished. Maybe that's why felted toys are often called soft sculptures. They are labour-intensive and tend to be static. However every work is one-of-a-kind.
Artists who work in needle-felting technique often strive to overcome immovability of their oeuvres. For this purpose I use bendable skeletons and splinters.
I invest a part of my soul in my each and every work. They may be sad, cheerful, funny, but their nature is always positive. Whenever they fall in the hands of a new owner, they are destined to convey the atmosphere of warmth and love, in which they were created.
I have TOBY (2014, 2015) and TBAAF (2014, 1st place) awards. My toys went to the private collections in Russia, United Kingdom, USA, Switzerland, France, The Netherlands, Canada, Japan and Hong Kong.
Everybody is welcome to my page!
