Golden Orb


My haiku and quilt are inspired by our glorious Sun. I hand stitched all the gold using gold aurora holoshimmer sewing thread. The rest of the piece was felted by hand using one fine felting needle and wool, silk and some specialty yarns held together with a little angelina for sparkle. It is mounted on black and gallery wrapped.

finished size 11"x14"

Cherie

Dispeller of gloom
incandescent, resplendant
blazing Golden Orb

Cherie, The visual effect of your piece stands by itself, but combine your techniques and the 8-word-haiku and it really stands out. What a great piece.

I'm in awe of your one-needle felting and the lovely effects. Wow.

A swirling solar storm/solar flare is what I see Cherie!
Time for me to go back to single n/f

I am partial to spiral patterns, and yours is no exception, Cherie. The felting technique lends a softness to the light, particular to spring I think.
