Throughout its history, felt is most commonly used for protection from the elements, in clothing and shelter. In many traditions, felt garments were imbued with cultural meaning as well as function. When using the wet felting technique, I lay the wool out and apply soap and warm water. Then, using my hands, I condense the material by repeatedly rubbing it. Agitation causes the fibers to interlock permanently, creating a denser fabric the more it has been touched. In several of my works, Felt is used as a record of action, acknowledging the process of wet felting as an interaction between body and material.
