Moon Dance

This figure of a dancing moon in a field of stars and night sky was partly inspired by the idea of "hands like stars" which was something a dear friend of my mother's used to say about babies' hands (you have to imagine it being said with a lovely British accent.) The garment is made of felted wool on hand dyed silk. Thank you to Deborah Pope, a wonderful artist and instructor, who taught me how to felt last summer. You can read more about her and her classes at deborahcpope.typepad.com.
