This collection of pottery looks like it could be on display at your local natural history museum or uncovered during an excavation -- yet look closer and you'll realize these pieces are actually created from felt.

The pieces were created as part of the 'Between Two Rivers' exhibition by Amsterdam artist and designer Siba Sahabi. With their intricate ridges and multi-faceted layers these pots are just asking to be picked up and admired. The craze of felt pottery is very popular among crafters and ceramicists looking to try something different.

Felt pottery could be an interesting alternative for any parents with young toddlers who are prone to knocking over fragile ornaments. The exhibition runs at WinterSALON until February 17th 2013.
