Vadmal Vases





Vadmal is the Scandinavian word for felted wool - even though I am starting with wool felt (wool and rayon) from the fabric store, I dyed it, batched it, and washed it...when it came out of the washer, I lost 50% due to shrinking, but it was considerably more fuzzy - Ah ha !!! So, that combined with the fact that I have only norske and svenska blood cursing through my veins, I thought I was entitled to use the term...these organic shapes that I have made are beautiful, but need a name - envision them with twigs, flowers, etc. coming out of them. WHAT DO YOU THINK ??? - any ideas for what to call them ?

Stunningly beautiful, Fiona - the green one is to die for... I'm sure I can't afford it, but if I was flush it would be sold
