What art offers is space - a certain breathing room for the spirit.
~John Updike

Felt is used in many ways -- in the making of musical instruments, automobiles, and buildings, for instance. But it can also be used for art:

Felt seems a natural material in the hands of a creative clothing designer ... and these pieces certainly demonstrate that.

What I love particularly, though, are the paintings. I'll bet the texture really shows when viewed in person.
