Crochet and Needle Felted Design
Did you ever lose a thought or a memory?
Even just the smallest thought of what you had for breakfast last Tuesday? It’ll be lost and forgotten, amongst many memories just the same. Lost in the forgotten places where there’s no control over any of them.
So they build themselves together, using the forgotten fluff and dust, found only in the forgotten places.
Half fluff and the other half, the wonderful essence of “People”, the Pheeple have decided that they don’t want to be forgotten any more. They want to explore the world that’s forgotten them, and remember as much of it as possible.
Of course, not all forgotten thoughts are mundane and quiet. Some thoughts, before they were forgotten, were so intense that they even made you laugh out loud, and jump on the spot with excitement. And some are so terrible, that as soon as they are conjured into your mind, you immediately cast them aside, down the back of the sofa with the rest of the dust.
You might need to keep your eye on the Pheeples that are born there…
Welcome to Rebecca's Emporium
My Name's Rebecca and I adore the weird and wonderful! I work with felt and textiles to try to bring something different to the world.
All of my work is needle felted which is a process using barbed needles, which when pushed through the fibres of wool, matt the fibres together to create a solid sculpure.
Through this technique I have explored methods of jewellery making, sculpture and bringing the felt Pheeples into exhistance!
My felted pieces are not sold as toys and are unique soft sculptures, art dolls so please treat them with care. They are are made from dyed merino wool with small plastic and metal parts that would not be suitable for children.
Each Pheeple art piece design will be limited addition pieces, made a certain number of times and labelled as such.
They will come with their very own story written either by myself or by Lewis Docherty
(he's written some amazing little stories for my work before and has agreed to work with me to create some adorable, little Pheeple stories).
There will also be some limited edition Pheeple jewellery pieces to go with each story.
They will be sold separately from the wall art pieces, but will still be numbered and will include a copy of the Pheeple story for that particular design.
The stories so far:
The Snowy Pheeple and His Scarf
Minty The Giant Pheeple
The Valentine Pheeple
