How We Felt

from the manufacturer:

Felt artist Carol Huber Cypher takes readers behind the scenes in search of the techniques and inspirations that define the best contemporary feltmakers. In this beautifully photographed book, images of signature works by admired fiber artists are complemented by in-depth information on creating their unique effects.

Beginning with an iconic project, the technique of felting around a ball that artist Beth Beede made famous and taught throughout the world, the book continues with more than 20 artists and highlights diverse forms, including hats, capes, a dress, bags, slippers, jewelry, rugs, pillows, a curtain, an ottoman, and other decorative pieces, plus vessels, hanging installations, a felted chess set, and other art forms. A gallery showcases other artists and provides further ideas to spark the fiber artist’s imagination. Readers are encouraged to use the examples and instructions to inform their own creative endeavors.

In addition to practical information on creating the pieces shown, each project is accompanied by biographical information and insights into the artist’s own inspiration. The combination of images, ideas, and information make this book a must-have for feltmakers who want to deepen their repertoire of techniques, aspiring fiber artists seeking new directions for their work, and any reader wanting to be dazzled with breathtaking images of inventive artwork.
