I have allways had a love for horses and spent many summer days riding and rounding up cows. I was inspired to make this horse after I had made a needle felted cow, they look adorable together on the shelf. Many hours were spent needle felting every detail. The mane and tail are actual horse hair and come from my parents horse. This is An original design by Fiber Artist Teresa Perleberg. The horse is made out of solid wool from the artists flock of Romney sheep. 8 inches tall and 10 inches long.

Smoke free home.

Needle Felting:
Felting Needles are small straight needles with barbs cut along the shaft. When repeatedly pushed into a tuft of wool fibers, the barbs pull the fibers down, compressing and locking them together. The barbs are cut in one direction so that felting or matting together of the fibers will occur when the needle is pushed in and not when it is pulled out.
This felting process makes a large tuft of wool condense down into a more dense mass of wool. Stabbing the wool more in one spot will depress that area creating a dent or depression in the sculpture. Each piece takes many hours to complete and thousands of stabs with the felting needle.
All my pieces are made of solid wool that comes from my flock of Romney Sheep. They start with a tuft of carded wool and develop into an animal sculpture. We process the wool on our farm. Most of my pieces are inspired by our farm animals or animals in the wild. I first take or find many pictures of the animal from all angles. I then sculpt the animal out of wool as I study the pictures

Frequently asked questions about BearCreekDesign

I am afraid I do not do custom work. I did for awhile and found that it was more stressful and took the fun out of what I do. I have found that I can do better work on an animal that I am inspired to make.

That said, I do take requests. I love to hear what my customers would like me to make. I can't guarantee that I will make it but sometimes I am inspired by a request. I keep a list of requests and check it often when deciding what I would like to make next. If you have pictures that is even more inspiring.

I try to notify the person that has made the request when I make that particular animal. I post all my new works on my Facebook page, plus I send out an email newsletter.
I would be happy to gift wrap and add a note to your package.
