Felting Hands

“Felting Hands” is a three dimensional interpretation of Escher’s “Drawing Hands”. It is made entirely of wool. By shaping fluffy wool with your hands and then poking it repeatedly with a felting needle, the air is pressed out and the barbs on the needle lock the fibers together. It’s kinda like sculpting with dry paint. So, these two hands are basically felting each other into excistence.
