I have to thank the Brabourne Farm blog for tipping me off about the wonderful artist Domenica More Gordon. Look at the incredibly adorable felted pups she creates. I believe this sort of work is called 'felting'. But if you ask me how it's done, I just couldn't say. But I bet you could find the 'how to' online. Or at least, the beginning of 'how-to'. This sort of fine work, for me, rises above craft. Each little dog looks as if he or she might, at any moment, spring to life. All that's required is the wave of a magic wand. Is it art? Is it craft? Is it sculpture? Is it a toy?
All of the above.
