Global Warming and Rising Sea Levels
Felted Textiles

I made this felt using the wet felting method, with silk tops added for texture and movement, on the topical theme of global warming. The layers represent heat, ice and water and the very real possibility that global warming will have a knock on effect on our oceans with inevitable social and ecological effects

The hot pink represents heat from global warming
The white represents the melting glacier ice caps
The blue represents the ocean and rising sea levels

It is a work in progress and ready for stitching on and I will show the finished piece a little later
