Benton's Menagerie

Tracy Benton loves a bit of fluff. She spent many years studying and exploring ceramics, but the moment she started to experiment with wool, she was hooked. Tracy starts the process with a ball of pure wool roving. This is shaped using a special barbed needle that binds the fibres together. After much jabbing and stabbing a beautiful sculpture emerges. A single piece can take several hours to make. The sculptures are displayed on hand made ceramic bases to show each piece off to its best advantage.
