About

Mt. Marten: A Place to Find Unique Needle-Felted Creations

I have been a visual artist for many years, currently working as a freelance animator and illustrator. My work is inspired by the natural world and all of the creatures found in it, both familiar and strange. I feel like I always need to have some sort of very tangible, textural, "hand-made" quality to my work, even if it is created digitally. Really, I like creating things in many ways, but for the longest time there was no 3-dimensional medium that completely appealed to me.

Then, in 2013, I discovered a whole new creative outlet: needle felting. As soon as I saw the creations one could make through this medium, I knew it was for me. I love the minimalism of materials involved and how it is directly connected to nature. It speaks to the same aesthetic sensibilities I hold with my 2-dimensional art, and ultimately my goal in creating needle felted work is the same - I want to make things that delight, spark people's imagination, and even create whole new worlds to explore.

When people buy art and decor, I believe it should be a thoughtful purchase for a good product that is not to be thought of as disposable. I aim to create quality needle-felted sculptures and decorations that people can really treasure for a long time to come.

My wool and materials are all sourced from other small businesses who are based in the U.S. If you would like more information about them, please check out their sites:

    I have always loved creating art of all kinds - though my main career is in animation and illustration, once I discovered needle felting I was hooked! My aim with Mt. Marten is to create felted sculptures that can be treasured by anyone.

Returns and exchange details
As a general note, the items I sell are each made individually by hand. If you are buying an item that is made upon order, and therefore has stock images in its listing, please keep in mind that what you receive will inevitably have slight variations, including, potentially, the specific color(s) of the item.

If you are dissatisfied, though, returns are allowed. Please contact me within 14 days describing the issue. You will receive a refund (which covers the total cost of your original payment, including shipping). You must send back your item within 30 days of of the delivery (this shipping cost is the responsibility of the buyer).
Payment
Credit Card and Paypal are accepted methods of payment. No checks please. Etsy gift cards are accepted as well!

Please note that if you are in California I am required to collect sales tax on your order.
Shipping
Items purchased in the U.S. will be shipped First Class with tracking included. Upgrades to 2-Day Priority Shipping are available when purchasing your item. Please contact me if you feel that you need a different shipping option.

For international purchases, First Class shipping will be used. If you require tracking for an international order please choose Registered Mail.

Shipping prices are my best estimation based on the size and weight of the item. This can get tricky especially when it comes to combining shipping on several items. For these reasons, if your shipping cost ends up being off by greater than $1.00, I will refund you the difference!
Additional policies and FAQs
Here are some basic care guidelines for needle felted products to help you take the best care of your purchase:

-this may seems obvious, but in general, keep your item away from things that are spill-able or anything that may stain or dirty it- you'll have a really hard time finding a way to clean it well and still maintain the integrity of your piece!!
-do not put through the washer/dryer!
-do not immerse in water or cleaner
-do not pull on loose strands of wool. If there is an undesired stray hair, clip it off with scissors rather than pulling.
-a good way to clean off a needle felted piece that has collected some dust is to use compressed air- just don't hold the can right next to it or directly on it!
-if the piece is made on a wire armature, do not give it to small children or pets as toys. If you're not sure if there's any wire, double-check the listing or send me a convo!

Storage

If you need to pack away your needle felted items until the next holiday season, for a move, etc., here are some helpful tips to keep them in great condition:

-keep the box/bag you received your item in for easiest storage
-otherwise, wrap it up in its own piece of tissue paper, bubble wrap, etc.
-do not place heavy items on top of it. If it stays squished down for long enough it can lose its shape!
