On Etsy since 2011

Blackwater Alcove is my home and it is a green place filled with nooks and crannies...

Felted wool creations are inspired by the natural wetland colors and textures in the misty forest and bogs of my home. Wool bowls are great for the home as catch-alls for jewelry, office supplies, or educational toys. Rainbow stacking and nesting bowls are valuable for learning colors, sizes and coordination as well as useful for sorting and storing. Panhandlers let you keep your hand cool when your iron skillet is hot! 100% wool mason jar sleeves can help keep the contents cold, hot, act as a coaster and make the jar look beautiful. Now for cans too!

All my felted creations are hand crocheted from 100% wool and then fulled, blocked, and trimmed. From time to time, Items are available in hand dyed versions using non-toxic dyes.

I have been creating with wool since childhood. I learned to crochet at a very young age from my mother and grandmother. I have used crocheting as a way to produce, relax, meditate, and create for as long as I can remember. I began felting in a quest for non-toxic, educational toys made from natural materials. I learned how great the medium is for creating items that are both beautiful and useful. I have always loved color and have explored how things capture and reflect light through both creative and scientific endeavors.
