About The Work
Our collaborations seemed like a natural evolution. Both of us are trained woodworkers and I had a bit of felting knowledge while Kristy is a professional, working and teaching in felt. It started with some Madrone disks that had been in the ‘dusty corner’ pile of my studio. When steamed and re-formed they became perfect containers for Kristy’s felt explorations. The work that emerged is reminiscent of fossils, snails and shells. A synthesis of form and texture.
