Large gnome, hand needlefelted from wool. This cheeky character in his smart blue coat has a steampunk vibe and abundant facial hair.
Needlefelting is the process of felting wool using a special barbed needle. As the needle is plunged into the wool, the barbs catch the wool fibres, pulling them into the centre of the piece, and matting or felting the fibres. This technique can be used to create 3D sculptures and can also be used to create 2D wool ‘paintings’.
The piece is about 12 cm tall, excluding beard.
