A New Product...

by Lynne of cozycottagecreations

I've been crafting away getting ready for the holidays. As always, lots of ideas for new products have been swirling around my head. I've chosen three of those ideas to bring to life for the holiday season. I'm excited about them all, but the one I'm most eager to unveil is a new type of felted bowl.

It's a real departure of style from my previous work. The idea for these was truly one of my very first when I began working in wool three years ago. Over time, this idea has gestated in my brain. It was over the summer while browsing in a very inspiring fiber shop (I'd call it a yarn shop, but they sell so much more than yarn) in Portland Maine that I discovered the final element that crystallized the idea and inspired me to bring it to full form.

I call these Geode Bowls because they remind me of those rocks which when cracked opened reveal a spectacular inside. Although they can still function as a bowl, I see them more as an art object. Hope you like them! You can find these Felted Geode Bowls for sale in a few weeks both in my etsy shop and at Boston Handmade's Downtown Gallery.
