About Shelley Jones

I have fallen under the spell of felting, working with a range of wools from fine to coarse, adding silks and other fibers to my pieces. My process begins in wondering what if..., then manipulating and transforming. I create 3-D pieces, favoring color and playfulness. With a background in graphic arts, silversmithing and jewelry I can draw from a variety of tools and techniques (to shape, mold, fold, and curve) pushing my felt into whatever form I desire. I often dye my own fibers, embellishing with threads, and always stretching myself and my medium.
