Hide, Badger! An auction to help resist the cull

Hide, Badger!

I am currently auctioning this piece of mine on ebay with all the proceeds going towards Stop the Cull, a group helpingĀ  resist the badger cull currently being trialed in the UK. This is an original wall mounted relief piece, 100% needle felted in wool and mixed fibers on a fabric backing. It measure 30x25cm and comes ready to hang.

See the auction page here

As many of you will know, the UK government had approved a trial cull in the West Somerset and West Gloucester areas, despite the fact that there is little evidence that this will prevent the spread of bovine TB and some evidence that it will actually make it worse. I think it’s a tragedy that such beautiful animals are going to be made to suffer, not to mention that we don’t know what the knock on effects of reducing the numbers by so much would be for the rest of our eco system

I will also be selling cards and prints with proceeds going towards Stop the Cull, so keep an eye open.

Princess Cottongrass and Leap the Elk

Cottongrass copy

Greetings all! I have been very quiet on here for the last few months, first there was Christmas then recovery from an operation, but I’m back in the studio now and I’ve been working on a few new pieces. I need to have a day of photographing to have some more pictures to share with you all, but this is my latest creation, completed just a few days ago and inspired by the Swedish folk tale of Princess Cottongrass and Leap the Elk.

This piece measures 40x60cm and is entirely needle felted.

Edit: I had the wonderful David Robinson photograph some of my work yesterday, so I have updated the picture with a much better quality one that he took.
