From the idea stages thought he actual creation and execution of the work we draw on each others strengths for technical and aesthetic excellence. Hand felted wool and hand sculpted stoneware are the main elements we have chosen to express in our vision. The transformation that occurs in the construction of the felt is magical. Boiling water and soap are added to loose wool fibers encouraging little barbs on the fibers to relax and open. Agitating the wool causes the fibers to bind to one another. As a result the fabric shrinks and becomes dense and thick. Later the fabric is put into an acid bath on the stovetop and dyed to the desired color. The other component in our work is primarily hand thrown stoneware. Each piece, no matter how small, is given its own time on the center of the wheel. By looking beyond the lump of clay and allowing it to reveal its own identity we intend to release the specific vibration that it holds.
