Nancy Lee Wragg: Embellished Feltings
Nancy Lee Wragg produces wonderfully textural felted pieces that she embellishes with embroidery. Her simplest works are Christmas (or everyday) ornaments. Her more elaborate pieces have intricate images created of wool, which is then felted and embroidered. Her color pallette is subdued, almost earthy colors, brightened with a periwinkle blue and stark black to provide contrast and interest. Her work makes belting appear to be the logical extension of art quilting - a medium where you can fully manipulate the fiber.
