Description

These two little needle felted goslings remind me of the time a few years ago when I cared for - as part of Sierra Wildlife Rescue - a pair of Canada geese goslings. I think they're even cuter that ducklings, which is hard to imagine. Once they were fully plumed I let them out of their pen during the day to roam the property and their antics provided me with many of my favorite memories. I remember the day they first flew. They circled a few times then came in for a fairly rough landing. They continued taking their morning flights for a few months and then one day they didn't return. That was bittersweet.

These two are my tribute to goslings everywhere!

I needle felted them from pure wool fiber over wire armatures that I made. Needle felting is a sculpting technique which builds form by continuously adding wool fiber to the piece by poking the added fiber with a special needle. The needle has tiny barbs which entangle the tiny barbs on the wool fibers, creating a solid mass. The colors you see are the different colors of wool. The eyes are glass beads.

The goslings are 5 1/2" tall, 7" long, and 5" wide. They are gently posable because of the wire armature inside. I've given them collars that I made from tiny gold glass beads and vintage star shaped glass buttons.

I had tied a small metal tag with my name to one of their legs to indicate that they are original, completely hand made, one-of-a-kind pieces of art.

You may purchase one or both. If you purchase only one, you may select which one you want by letting me know "left" or "right" as seen in the first photo.
