For me the thrill of wool is being able to create an object from fiber, from which one would never have guessed it was made. It’s a bit magical!


Needle felted-waxed chocolate cake with strawberries and blueberries. This cake and berries are needle felted from wool! The cake was constructed by making a rectangle-shape of felted brown wool then connecting the ends to make a circle, a separate felted circle was placed on top making a hollow cake. I covered the cake shape with brown and pink colored wax for icing.


“Most recently, I’ve started to create felted-waxed food. The felted-wax process is perfect for many types of food. I continue to challenge myself in this medium concerning texture in search of realism. “ Laura Lee Burch

Each berry was needle felted from wool, waxed with bee’s wax and the strawberries were varnished. The little seeds in the strawberries are sesame seeds. I had to dig a little hole for each seed, pick it up with a needle and lay it in place: time consuming!!!
