Felted Nativity by Celeste Mookherjee
Clear

Currently unavailable for purchase



A beautifully handcrafted Nativity set created by artist Jessica Savage Anderson by a technique known as needle felting. I met Jessica in 2011 at a holiday boutique where I was also showing and selling my work and photographed some of her work just as it was displayed on a white riser. Later in Photoshop I added an “ice” overlay from the free 12 Days of Christmas items offered by Isabelle Lafrance Photography plus a touch of my custom sparkle brush to create the star. (Olympus E-5 & Zuiko 50mm macro, f/6.3, 1/60 sec., ISO 1600, fluorescent lighting, handheld)

Winner of “Nativity Scenes” challenge in #1 Favorites group (January 2014)

    What a neat art form. I have never seen or heard of needle felting. I love the way it looks and you have put your magic touches on it…Just gorgeous!!

  • Thanks very much, Kristi! Jessica describes needle felting as sculpting with wool. I really enjoyed watching her create new pieces right there at the boutique. The little scene looked pretty good on pure white once I cleaned the background up just a bit, but I liked what the pale blue icy overlay and star did for it.

    A beautifully precious scene . . . like Kristi I had never heard of this. What a find and your version is perfect!

  • Katherine, thank you so much! I had also never heard of needle felting until I saw Jessica’s delightful artwork at the holiday boutique.
