Each work of fibre art is created from handmade felt by building alternating layers of carded wool. As a painter works her layers of paint, Sanna layers her colors in fibres to achieve her desired image. By manipulating other raw fibres such as silk and linen and placing them down on the final layers of wool Sanna accents her pieces as if using the fibres as heavy brush strokes. These accents reflect light, adding to the depth and rich texture of her work. One of the final and most important steps of the creative process involves subjecting the mass of loose yet carefully placed fibres to the physical and sometimes unpredictable process of traditional felt making.
Each work is beautifully framed in Black Walnut by fellow artisit and wood carver Douglas Drdul.
We currently have a selection of Sanna's work on display in the gallery. For residential and commercial interiors, these durable and permanent works require no special maintenance.
