In process – Mandala #2

So this piece is still pretty rough and a little difficult even to show, but that’s how everything starts out. This mandala will almost exclusively be made by needle felting. This process mechanically forces the fibers to tangle. The first mandala was about the melding of world views, this one is more reflective of world views forced on us by birth or environment. I’ll go into more detail when it’s completed, which might be a while. This will require many, many more hours at the felting machine.

Here I’m working on the second layer, the lace layer. Some bits have been felted down already, but many are still just pinned (the ones you more defined edges)
