If you're asking yourself right now, Is that bulldog made of felt? The answer is yes. Yes it is. This magnificent specimen was sculpted by the very talented Stephanie Metz, a Bay Area-based artist who works exclusively in wool, to great - and accurate - effect. Her detailed, meticulous work includes sculptures of various creatures and animal skulls, as well the human figure.
I'm a bit obsessed with wool, and have my own felt dog, which my sister bought for me at a Tokyo craft fair last year. It may not be a Stephanie Metz creation, but I still love it.
To each his own felt.
