Needle Felted Fruit - Bartlett Pear

Here is a nice ripe Bartlett pear that won’t attract fruit flies! It was sculpted with wool. The process is called needle felting and it involves stabbing the wool with a needle that has tiny barbs on its sides. This causes the wool fibers to interlock with each other. Each time the wool is pierced with the needle, the sculpture becomes more dense.

I begin my wool sculptures with a white core wool and concentrate on getting the shape right. Then I layer colored wool on top of that and needle felt it over the white. People who see this pear often want to know if I painted it because of the blush of red on one side and the tinge of green on the other side. I do this with thin layers of colored wool. I like to try for as much realism as possible. This is a life size pear. The height of the pear is 3 1/4" (8.255 cm) not counting the stem and 4 1/2" (11.43 cm) with the stem. The width at the fattest part is 2 1/4" (5.715 cm).
