"Fairy Rust"

This is my felted entry in the New Zealand Wearable Art Awards (WOW) which opened in Wellington on Thursday night. Beautifully modeled by Rachael.
It is in the children's section which was themed "At the Bottom of the Garden" where we were to take inspiration from flora and fauna, myths & fairy tales and anything else to be found at the bottom of ones garden.
My inspiration was a from a pile of rusted metal and wire. A little "fairy dust (rust) can make a beautiful transformation.
More pictures next week after I get back form the 10th Southern Hemisphere Feltmakers Convergence which I am off to early tomorrow morning.
