Although I’m a knitter, the art of felting is a mystery to me. While I don’t understand it, I am in awe of the artistry behind these felted birds from Samurai Felt.
So lifelike they look ready to take flight, the artist , based in Hyogo, Japan, says “I have needled felt little animals out of wool since last year,inspired from nature near by my habitation. I realy [sic] love the beauty of nature animals and birds, so I always strive to make them as realstic [sic] as possible.” (via)
If only these sweet friends would visit the bird bath in my backyard.
