Needle felted hare/Hare sculpture/Jack Rabbit
I have named him 'The Wise Old Hare' because he is exactly that.
This detailed sculpture was a labour of love which designed itself during the making process. It just knew what it wanted to be and, if you look into it's eyes, you will see it really is a 'Wise Old Hare'. Just one of the many joys of handmade.
A beautiful, unique needle felted woodland hare in a folk art style made with imagination, skill and a lot of time.
Hares are always a joy to make and this one is sculpted from the finest British breed natural, undyed Shetland, Jacob and Swaledale wool tops.
It has loosely felted ears giving it a more earthy look with lots of colour blending and layering for added dimension.
The legs are shaped around a wire frame which are needle felted into position allowing the creation of its distinctive pose. The hare itself is not poseable but why would you want to change it...
Purchasing this piece will add a unique piece of fibre art sculpture to your home and be a talking point for anyone who views it, once they have stopped looking into those wise, old eyes...
It's height is approx: 13cm and its width (from tips of ears) is approx: 16cm. Depth from front paws to end of tail is approx: 11cm
