Mikaela Bartlett

Graduating from Wolverhampton university of Art and design with a degree in Ceramics, I moved to Yorkshire and continued to create figurative sculptures for the next ten years, exhibiting across the country.
 
I discovered the art of needle felting in 2016 and started experimenting, using the same technique as my clay sculptures, wrapping wool around wire armatures, in place of the paper clay and compressing and sculpting the wool with a single barbed needle.

I love the possibilities of blending wool for instant colour and the ability of adding fine details just using wool fibre and a single barbed needle.

Inspired mostly by British wildlife, I love to sculpt the animal form, trying to capture the movement and personalities of these beautiful creatures.

I work mainly to commission for private collectors worldwide.
