Oh, oH, OH ----- be still my heart.  Amazing.  The colors, the detail, the whole concept.  The art of the photography using the mirror. 

Am assuming this is all wet felted.  Does the vase stand alone by virtue of being very firm felt, or did you use a stiffiner to make it stable?  And does the gladiolus stem have a wire in it?  Are the flowers felted in place or sewn onto the stem.  With your level of felt making am guessing it is totally felted together.  Some day I hope to achieve that level.  For now I'm still using needle and thread to do attachments. 

As always, wonderful to see your creations.

Oh thank you!  Is the wool felted to the glass vase and never comes off?  What a neat concept.  You really think outside the box - think creatively.  Love, love, love what you do.

Thanks for sharing some of those secrets.
