Today’s spot of creativiTEA is brought to you by San Francisco-based artist Stacy Polson.
She created these needle-felted teapot sculptures for an exhibition at the Mobilia Gallery in Cambridge, MA. She chose “If Ducks Ran the Circus” as her theme for these beautiful and whimsical pieces.
She initially got into needle felting while trying to re-create 17th century Japanese woodcuts in wool. I love the gorgeous colors and quirky details of her wool paintings. Isn’t it simply amazing what can be done with a needle, some wool, “a little determination,” and lots of imagination?
Stacy is self-taught and tells me she’ll be making more teapots, which makes me very happy indeed.
