Felt Art by Claire

October 17, 2008


“Choppy Day” detail


“There was that Time” detail

Claire de Ruiter makes much of her art using felt and embroidery as her medium and I really love what she turns out. The bottom photo is of her felt installation titled “The Journey’s Project” in which she has locals create their own “felt stone”…with a drawing or text relating to their own personal journey embedded inside of it and then placed in the wall, as well as the “wishing tree” at the base of the wall containing peoples wishes embedded withing it’s leaves.
What I find astounding is…she mentions that only 1% of all wishes that she has collected have been for personal gain i.e. money, careers. The rest have been wished on behalf of someone else.
