new wool landscape brooches


I've been working on just a few new brooches lately and wanted to give you a peek.  These are all small needlefelted wool scenes fitted into bases that I make by hand.

I was really liking how the cracks in this stump lined up with the leafless trees in this nighttime scene.  This one has a teardrop shaped base made from an oak limb I brought in from the woods.  I think with all this heat we've been having I was subconsciously seeking those leafless winter nights in the woods.


A golden field against a clear blue sky.


I've shared this piece previously in a Wordless Wednesday post.  This one has been fitted into a piece of antler that I cut and drilled and it is, to date, the smallest landscape scene I've made.  I think it may also be one of my favorites.


Making these little scenes allows me to daydream about peaceful places I've been and places I'd like to see.  I sometimes think of them of as little postcards saying "wish you were here". 

These will be in my shop on Monday at noon CST.

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

Oh.........my...........gosh. These are breathtaking! I love the combination of wood and wool. Up to now I have not seen a lot of felting that blows me away, but these pieces certainly do.

Oh my freakin' goodness. That night scene is drop dead gorgeous. The contrast of the jewel blue with the tones in the wood is just beautiful - you have such an eye for color and contrast.

Lisa,
Although I already own 3 of your brooches I think I may let my finger hover over the keys at noon on Monday to try for another. I find your work and your blog inspiring and so look forward to seeing if there's a new post each day. Your photos are so lovely - have you considered a photo book of your work? I hope someday to see one.
Cheers,
Michelle

I know I have said it before, but I'll have to say it again, your work is amazing! These landscapes in wood are so precious.

Mel said...

These are amazing! I can't choose a favorite. You are very gifted. I imagine they will fly out of the shop, so I'm heading over there first thing. Thanks for the peek.

Just beautiful, Lisa.

These are beautiful! Such detail and love went into them. We're trying to make some embroidered pieces that attach to wood and I was wondering what type of adhesive you use to attach your wool to the wood? I've been searching for something that won't bleed through and applying it is easy. Thank you so much.
