Felt Flotsam and Jetsam

Flotsam and jetsamThis latest work was inspired by the flotsam and jetsam that is found on beaches everywhere.

I started the project a couple of days ago when I made the ‘orbs’ but although I knew I wanted a mobile, I wasn’t sure how to start.  So all the bits and pieces to make it lay on the dining room table looking at me for a while.

Last night after looking at the dining room flotsam and jetsam cluttering the table, I went to bed but couldn’t sleep except fitfully. At 1.30am I got up and had completed the mobile in two hours.  I’m now pooped, but satisfied lol.

Taking sea blues, images of shells, seed pods, fishing nets, rope, and seaweed, I felted some ‘orbs’ in blues and added details of wool nepps, shells, polished stones, feathers and other beachy items, glueing where necessary. Then I hung them all together with string and a few pieces of wood and here’s my felt Flotsam and Jetsam!

(The leaves at the top aren’t part of it, they are part of the hanging plant I hung the work from).

This would look lovely in a bathroom, or beach inspired room.  It would also suit a beach house, or holiday home.
