Autumn Forest Felt & Wire Art by Eve & Shalini
Original Wall Art AUTUMN FOREST mixed media collaboration “Esha” with Felt Work by Eve Marshall & Wire Work by Shalini Austin.
Wall Art ‘Autumn Forest’ is our first artwork together.
I created a wire forest framework using soft aluminium wire. The wire has been twisted to form the tree trunks, branches and grass.
Eve then wet felted the background using a mix of merino wool and needle felted the tree tops and birds.
This picture comes in a 2 inch deep white box frame which is 10 inches square and has a suitable hook for wall mounting.
How Esha started… Eve and I first worked together when I used her felted beads to make Brooches and accessories for my jewellery range. Then, during an exhibition we were both part of in early 2014, Eve started playing with a Wire Sculpture Peacock I was playing with and needle felted its body. That’s how the idea of “ESha” was born. It took a few months before our first picture Autumn Forest came into being.
