This beautiful and tactile felt bowl looks lovely just on its own, a reminder of smooth and solid natural stone yet so light and warm to touch. It also makes a brilliant storage vessel as it won't scratch the surface underneath. Ideal to have in the hall for dropping your keys or loose change into but just as useful for your jewellery. On your office desk it will store paperclips and rubber bands, or place it on a shelf for gathered nature finds such as feathers and shells.
It has been made by carefully laying out several fine layers of wool fibres over a flat template. I have wrapped seacell over the surface to recreate the effect of the attractive stripes found running through some pebbles (seacell is a sustainable fibre made from seaweed and has the softness and shimmer of silk). The bowl has then been thoroughly felted and worked by hand after the template has been removed, until it has been transformed into its organic, rounded shape. Instead of being a perfect circle like a thrown pot it has a gently undulating outline and surface.
The bowl measures 14.5 cm across and is 6 cm deep, with an opening of just under 8 cm (measurements are approximate). It will be carefully wrapped and sent by Royal Mail First Class Recorded Delivery which will require a signature when it arrives. I have loved making it.
Please be aware that screen monitor colours can vary, and that I work in a smoke free home but do have very enthusiastic cat help from time to time!
I'm forever bringing objects I've discovered outside in nature into the house, and have a small collection of pretty, stripy pebbles grouped together on a shelf. I've loved finding them in the garden, sometimes buried in a flower bed or hidden under others in the gravelly path between our vegetable beds. They are a mixture of soft brown and grey tones, some dark and some pale, and have been the perfect inspiration for these stripy felted bowls.
