Aegean by Kathleen Dodge DeHaven - Felted, Beaded, Sequined Art Piece
"Aegean" by Kathleen Dodge DeHaven
What lives and moves in lapis depths? Everything takes on an unearthly glow under the sea, the sunlight filtering down, down, down.
Aegean is a needle-felted octopus with sequin “suckers" and hand-painted glass eyes. I first felted a base of a lovely lapis color wool, with shading in purple, hot pink, aqua, and magenta. I added tiny spots of wool in a variety of bright colors, and overlaid more lapis and purple. I then hand-sewed tiny translucent blue beads, reminiscent of water droplets. The legs were felted over a sturdy wire; only gentle repositioning and posing is recommended. Enjoy your needle-felted wool sculpture away from direct sunlight.
