Kindred Minds

Feltwork by Mary Ruth Smith, Betsy Henderson and Joyce King

Kindred Minds began as a piece commissioned for the lobby of the Family & Consumer Sciences building on the campus of Baylor University at Waco, Texas.

It was decided to do the piece in felted fleece, so we traipsed over to Jill Gully’s Woolshed (Outbackfibers.com) and picked out the colors we wanted. (Jill was in Australia at the time but Mark, her husband, helped us out.)

 

We began felting in August with no idea what we would do in the beginning, and just let the work develop on its own. All three of us made layer after layer and strip after strip till we got a good amount to choose from and just started putting layers together and stitching, we each did three pieces, sometimes exchanging pieces with each other so that there would not be too much of the individual in the look of any one work. Originally we were going to join the works to a background but we decided we liked them separated.

 

The final outcome was that each piece is mounted on wood blocks of different thickness of wood to give it an overall feeling of randomness which it was seeing since none of us knew what we were doing and used no pattern. This project took every waking moment of four months, but we learned a lot

(And I got addicted to working with felt.)
