With my walking boots on I can loose myself in nature, back in the studio with a table full of merino wool, I can once again lose myself in nature

Myra Hutton creates fantasies in hand-made felt. Large scale landscapes are deftly created through the long and very physical process of making wet felt from merino wool. Subtle colours are conjured up from the seemingly simple combination of dyed fleece fibres until eventually a landscape is revealed. The landscapes may have been sketched or photographed or even be a fantasy, but when seen, so many people relate to them, recall favourite walks and vistas that they become real, like nature once again.

Myra also creates smaller, more accessible pieces, made in just the same way but in a miniature scale.

Large Wall Art

My signature medium and presentation

'Heather Croft' wet felt landscape presented as open canvas style

Size 80cm (w) x 90 cm (H)

This is my signature artwork style, large scale landscape fantasies in hand-made felt. I make these with the long and very 'hands-on' physical process of making wet felt from merino wool. Subtle colours conjured from the simple combination of dyed fleece fibres until a single 'fleece' is made, this is unrolled and a glorious landscape is revealed. The inspiration landscapes may have been sketched or photographed or even  fantasy, but when face to face, people relate deeply with them; recalling favourite walks and vistas. Finished pieces can be either mounted and framed under glass, or - my favourite - presented 'open tapestry' style. When presented open they are free to breathe and gently react with the environment of your room, the loose fibres gently moving in the air and the shadows moving as the light in the room changes. This is a satisfying confluence of natural material, depiction of nature and interaction with the environment.

Smaller Wall Art

My signature medium in a compact format

Miniature landscape in wet felt framed

Frame size 20cm (w) x 20 cm (H)

Art piece size 10x10cm

I make small landscapes in my signature artwork style. The material used - merino wool felt, is made in the same way as for the large wall art, and the method of embellishment is the same. It's just that everything is in miniature. These pieces will typically be framed under glass in a frame around 20x20 or 30x30cms. Subtle colours conjured from the simple combination of dyed fleece fibres a created on pieces of fleece, and I collage this together to make a very striking and varied landscape view. A number of these together make a very nice display. I vary the sizes of the landscapes, but work in series, producing just a very small number at a time.

Art Objects

Textile art that's 'off the wall'

I make several ranges of textile art 'objects' in order to get my art 'off the wall' and onto the shelf. Much in the same way as you would place a sculpture or ceramic item.

The example shown here is a miniature landscape.. This is a  charming & detailed textile sculpture. Various designs available. Individually made in hand-made felt with embellishment of stitch and fabric, comes with a hand-carved driftwood style plinth. The felt has a lovely soft feel and an incredible richness of texture. Each one is individual and a little bit different. Sizes vary a little but are approximately 8x9 cms for the felt piece, when mounted on the included wood plinth they stand approx 11cm high.
