I started getting into needle felting recently when I wanted to do sculpture without resorting to the expense of taking up ceramics. I have a history of an interest in how items from the craft world translate into the art world. So of course, I did some Googling to see if other artists had also gone this route. While most of what I found were (adorable) felted toys more in the crafts category, I came across an artist that blew me away and inspires me greatly.
Fiber artist Stephanie Metz creates surreal and highly skilled needle felting sculptures featuring “overbred” domestic animals, organic structures in bones and flesh, and teddy bear anatomy.
