Philomath fiber artist, Laura G. Berman, created this delightful felted vessel entitled, “Violetta” … and the attached top opens!  Notice all the cute little purple mandalas adorning the entire piece. Even the vessel itself forms a mandala. It makes me want to pick it up and hold it.

About her art she states:

I’ve been passionate about textiles since I began sewing at age 8. Growing up in the Pacific Northwest, wool was a mainstay for warm clothing and the topic for my 4th grade science project. Later, I earned my degrees in apparel and textiles–and taking art classes whenever possible. …

I’m constantly looking for ways to expand my experience with felting. At this point in time, I am still playing with new ideas for quirky 3-D sculptures and transforming 2-D designs into functional art with texture, character, and warmth.

Along with her whimsical sculptures, do check out her fabulous fashion accessories

If you ever happen to be in the Willamette Valley Oregon area in late October, she hosts one of the studios for the annual Philomath Open Studios.

Laura’s creation inspires us to play with texture and textiles…in delightful functional ways.
