Horse Wooliture-Large Custom Needlefelt Sculpture
I will make you a wool sculpture portrait of your beloved horse or horses. Completely unique, fairly new sculpting technique that can not be mass produced.
Each one is entirely wool, (except for beads for eyes and polymer clay sculpted hooves). There are no forms or wires inside. Each is handmade by needlefelting clean sheep, llama and alpaca wool into a soft felt sculpture of your best friend. I felt them densely throughout, which takes some time, but creates a high quality finished artwork.
I offer three sizes and three prices of custom work as other items listed in the shop. They are the top three items listed in the shop. I will make any animal, any size, but I find medium and large allow me to add more detail.
If you buy this listing, I will make any breed of horse you love. This wooliture is of the large size, 7"-9" or larger.
If you are new to needlefelting, it is a process of making felt from cleaned wool rovings using a single barbed "felting" needle. When the wool is repeatedly stabbed with this needle, (at least hundreds of times), the barbs catch the crimps in the wool and dense it into felt. I use sheep, llama, and alpaca wools that have been repeatedly washed and are in the form called rovings which is just before it is twisted and spun into yarn. Instead, I make felt sculptures! Needlefelting with wool to create sculptures has only just begun to be explored by artists since the 1980's and is becoming very popular. I sculpted with kiln clays for years making pet portraits. Now I love needlefelting! This creates a soft sculpture with flowing manes and tails.
I create the woolitures from photos you send me and a little description of the horse's personality. You can send those pictures and descriptions to RoseThistleRanch [!at] aol.com.
These make wonderful gifts, ornaments or memorials, (I can even add a snip of tail hair to your wooliture to make this a cherished keepsake.) I can add wings, hats, or special toys if you would like. You pick the pose. I don't have to have a picture of the pose in order to create it for you.
I LOVE animals and how they touch their human's lives! I feel very blessed to be able to create art that honors our connections. Please convo me and tell me how your beloved friends have touched your life.
Each custom wooliture takes from 3-6 weeks to create.
A certificate of authenticity comes with your finished wool sculpture.
I provide a lifetime warrantee. I put my best into each wooliture and I want you to be very happy with your purchase.
