Megan Hammer | Felted Fine Art

Artist Statement

I create felted wool fine art to embrace the textures of nature. Just as wildflowers punctuate rolling hills with bursts of color and inspire a closer look, my work communicates exploration, while my process insists upon it. As fibers transform under my fingertips during the felting process, I delight in the contrast between my intentions and the tactile beauty and unpredictability of my medium.


Through my process of transforming wispy wool fiber into soft, strong felt, I explore the potential for harmony and collaboration with nature. I arrange tufts of cotton candy-like wool fiber in layers and apply soapy water and friction to create a piece of felt, to which I use a barbed needle to secure tiny strands of wool into place. I use vibrant, intricate details to accentuate the beauty of natural fibrous texture. I share moments of discovery through color and texture, and inspire the curious to explore along with me. 


The more I search for a connection between art-making and the natural world, the more enchanted I become with felted wool. The cool shade of a wooded path combined with the smell of soft earth underfoot, or the rustle of the late summer prairie touched by the breeze encourages me to make art activated by sense. My felted fine art shares an appreciation for nature, while exploring themes of conservation and change.
