needle felting birds
Aside Posted on Updated on
This is another guy that will be very hard to rid of. When I suddenly find that inspiration that makes me to take the needles and start something to work tirelessy on it till I see it finished, it’s a signal of a really special piece has been born.
Birds looks like easy pieces, but they aren’t, since you have only a very few parameters to give them “soul”; no fur, no theet and no facial expression like mammals have, so you must to find that delicate shapes that are the “quiz” for a lifelike feeling. The distance between eyes and beak, the curve of the head, and all the body proportions with mathematic precision… and all this, just with my eyes, they watch and send to my hands the order they need. This process will be always the great mystery to me.
It reminds me “Kika” the Magpie.. hard to see her go of, but a “mom’s pride” feeling too.. This is the sense of Art, actually.
