Today I am featuring the
Needle Felted Dolls
I LOVE these beautiful Needle Felted Dolls by Felt Oohlala! You can see how much the artist loves to create them, every detail is amazing!!
Here's a little of what the artist says about her work:
Although I am french, I am living in Hungary (middle Europe) for almost 20 years now, with my family. Here it is a very ancient tradition that wool, felted wool in particular, is used. This comes from back times, when hungarians had a nomadic way of life and "jurták" were their homes. (Those are tents made from felt fixed on a light wood structure, and proved being perfect in terms of lightness and isolation, and some could even reach relatively great sizes!) So, I used to see felted objects(mostly wet felted) at market fairs or museum feasts.
Making dolls is a thing I do from my little age (with more or less skill to be honest). An attempt to express some extra creativity and probably a need to empower and direct a virtual world (up to a certain point). Needle felting proved to be the right technique for me.
Each doll is like a present for me, that should bring warmth and wonder for those to whom it is destinated. I put much care and love in my creations and always try my best to conduct the process with sincerity and honesty. That is why my dolls are always my own design, and one of a kind.Their story come from the interaction of the long hours spending forming something which at the end is always unexpected, and feels right.
