Mycology – The Felted World of Amanda Fiebing
June 26, 2010 § 5 Comments
I’ve been looking at: the felted artworks of Amanda Fiebing. I discovered her delicate needle felted works while looking for photos of terrarium online – and was delightfully surprised she is also a Seattle artist!
I have to say: I love her careful eye and her attention to detail. Her newer terrarium inspired works featuring air plants and mushrooms are not only to scale but also scientifically accurate.
It’s inspiring to see other artists who are curious about the intricacies of biology. There’s also something really accessible about her soft sculpture; needle felting is intimate in scale, inviting to hold, made out of comfortable materials, and little fungi are meant to be gently foraged from the earth.
As of her last posting on April 24th, 2010 it seems that she has unfortunately run into an artistic road block. As Amanda says so herself, “It happens to every artist, writer, photographer, musician”. When so much of your drive, energy, resources, and time are invested into such an important activity it can be frustrating to lose sight of the muse. I sincerely wish Amanda the best, and look forward to viewing whatever she comes up with next. ❤ Grace Willard
