What makes art sustainable? Most certainly it cannot be if any part is thrown away. The materials needed to make art are expensive. Hence, I save everything that has my vision in it and use it as soon as possible. Lately I've noticed that when I felt wool on the FeltLOOM, and then cut out a design, I have leftover pieces that fall to the side. They still contain all the energy I put into the felting, the shibori pole wrapping, applying the dye and formulating the colors. They are still beautiful. Still contain the potential for more art if I ponder and respond creatively. This Eco-Topper was created by felting the "leftovers" on top of dyed black wool. I love the design because one size fits many, it's warm, can be worn over a sweater, and makes a strong, I know who I am, I know what I'm doing, statement. Currently she is on exhibit in my Dress-Up show at Mary Rezny's Gallery in Lexington, KY.
