Hand laid fleece around a resist that is then felted with it still in place. Using a combination of merino, shetland and silk thread to create an abstract form that resembles a quartz flecked natural round. The resist is removed when the felt is nearly ready before it is then finished during the rinsing process. Final forming be completed by hand. the shrinkage of the wool as it felts causes the silk thread curl.
Called a dragon egg to allow the viewer to apply their own interpretation. very tactile, looks like ceramic but actually very light, about 50g, and unbreakable, making it great for posting. About the right size to balance in your hands.
Inspired by the pebbles on the seashore, by sea urchins, naturally occurring rounds, tactile in nature.
