Meet Josephine From Heaven to Earth Handcrafted Felt
I am Josephine From Heaven To Earth, a self-taught felt artist. I create whimsical hand crafted pieces using a needle sculpting technique. I was first introduced to needle sculpture when my children began their Waldorf Steiner education. I am constantly learning and exploring with the process of each piece I create. I am dedicated to using only natural materials. I mainly work with Corriedale and Merino wool, Silk and other natural fibres are also incorporated into individual pieces. Each piece has its own distinctive characteristics, no two pieces are ever exactly the same. My inspirations come from the deep love of the whimsical world and fairy realm. I love to create pieces that bring magic and wonder to children and adults and it brings me so much pleasure when my pieces touch the soul of young and old. Many of my pieces are also inspired by the changing seasons, my own experiences or that of someone else, often connecting us together.
