When I brought a small pillow of moss in from the garden to study I was surprised to see just how bright it was. This bowl captures some of the character of the lush colour and texture in textile form and is cosy and light to hold. It makes an ideal vessel in which to keep gathered nature finds such as pine cones, feathers or shells. It will also look good just on its own - a reminder of the natural world outside. As it won’t scratch the surface underneath it can be put to great practical use holding keys and loose change in the hall, or paperclips and rubber bands on your office desk.
It has been made by carefully laying out several fine layers of wool fibres over a flat template. I have added silk to the surface which gives extra colour, texture and a beautiful faint shimmer. The bowl has 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 5 cm deep, with an opening of just over 7 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 and shaping 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!
My moss bowls have been inspired by a large, rounded stone covered with a mossy cushion which sits in the flower bed just outside our kitchen window. I've always loved the colour and texture of moss ever since I was a little girl, and will often stop to take photos of mossy banks and tree trunks.
