Susanne Farrington's Pottery and Felting
My friend, Susanne Farrington, long-time potter and felter, had some fabulous creations on display at the Hamilton market last Saturday. Susanne trades Mother Fiber for her mugs that I use for my shaving cups. Susanne paints adorable animal figures on her plates and bowls. I don't know how she does it, but her pottery is very hard wearing, and does not chip like so many do. I love to see what Susanne does with my fiber. She had some really cool felted hats out for customers to play with. Nobody makes hats quite like Susanne. They cover your head nicely and are impervious to moisture. The brilliant sunshine showed the beautiful colors I put in my Mother Fiber ("because wool is the Mother of All Fibers").
