Emperor Penguin
You don't have to be a Pittsburgh hockey fan to like this penguin. This majestic guy was sculpted with wool. The process is called needle felting and it involves stabbing the fiber with a needle that has tiny barbs on its sides. This causes the fibers to interlock with each other. Each time the fiber is pierced with the needle, the sculpture becomes more dense.

I begin my sculptures with a core wool and concentrate on getting the shape right. In this sculpture I built the shape over a wire armature which allows the penguin to be posed. Then I layer colored fiber on top of that and continue to needle felt over the core. Finally details are added. This penguin is 8" tall, 4" wide at the middle of the wings, and 5" from the front to the back of the tail.
