Biological Studies in Frightening Felted Wool

These amazing sculptures made from felted wool are by artist Stephanie Metz, which include studies of both animals and humans. They’re amazingly accurate.

She makes the felted wool the same way you would if you were making wool falls, but then she does simply amazing things with it.

Her teddy skull series manages to be both eerie and cute at the same time, no mean feat when you start with a teddy fetus in a jar. I also adore the way she has represented rolls of fat in both the animal and human figurative studies.
