Umbrella Tree Completed

I finished the umbrella tree and finally got some halfway decent photos taken. I will be submitting this to the “Shelter” Exhibition being held in October. I still have to write up my entry and figure out an artist’s statement to go with the piece. But I’m sure I can manage that by the middle of August when the entry is due. I thought you might like to take a look at the tree. The photos are from several different angles as well as some closeups.

About ruthlane

When I discovered felting in 2007, I finally found the creative outlet for which I had been searching. I love that the versatility of fiber allows me to β€œplay” with a wide variety of materials including wool, silk, fabrics, yarns and threads. Creating one of a kind fiber art pieces to share with the world fulfills my creative passion.

    It’s beautiful. I wish I could see it in person I’m sure there are subtleties in person the camera doesn’t get. And you’re working on the yurt as well. Wow! You are an inspiration.

      Thanks Marilyn. It is really hard to photograph because of it’s size. I’m not sure how impressive I am, I just always have to keep busy.

    That looks really good, Ruth, you should be really proud of it πŸ™‚

  5. That is just so amazing. I have never seen anything like it. I have seen felt art at our local art museum, but not like this.

    Your tree will make a good piece for the exhibition! I love the view up through the canopy.

    Very clever. I love how the strands of yarn look as if they are continuations of the spokes. And the rocks. πŸ˜‰

    Will you be able to exhibit it so that people can look up to get the “sun shining through the leaf canopy” effect? I hope so!

    • ruthlane says:

      Thanks! That was actually the plan for the “branches”. I am not sure if it will be high enough at the exhibit but I will work on that.

  8. this turned out great, love it

    I love the way the light shines through it. I wish I could see it. Enchantment.

    Thanks Liz, photos just are not enough sometimes. I always wish I could view things more closely.

  12. So beautiful! I’ve pinned to my ‘innovations in felt’ board on pinterest πŸ™‚
