Bush Dance
Sue Smorthwaite
Medium: handmade wool felt, found objects, silks, threads, wire and clay
I delight in presenting and promoting wet felting as a fine art form to a new and modern audience. My tools are my hands. Natural wools, textiles, threads, found objects, soap and water are my materials. I am exploring the ability to incorporate found objects into my work demonstrating the harmony achievable between contrasting natural materials.Using a combination of found seed pods and handmade wool felt, “Bush Dance” is a celebration of Spring.Rising from the dark, dead seed pods rooted in the ground up through the dancer’s stretching, awakening felt body, life emerges with an abundance of the wild flower colours of the local bush.
