The Felt Vessel - "Felt Purse"

This is our final feature for The Vessel Project. What a great experience it has been to collaborate with Susan Schwartz and the DEC 404 Interior Design class of 2011. We hope that the variety of work and ideas has inspired you to work on your own felt vessel or other felt project. So let us wrap things up with Trang Nquyen's "Felt Purse", a recent graduate from Humber College!


What is really impressive about this purse is the collaboration of felt with different materials such as leather and wood. How great is it to see the natural materials working with each other to produce this wonderful purse! Keeping with the natural theme of the materials, Trang cut out a the silhouette of a tree utilising both sides of the leather. This adds great texture and contrast to the purse. The earth tones in the leather and wood are succesfully paired with this natural white remnant felt. The Felt Purse shows true character and Trang's personal aesthetic, which we here at The Felt Store love to encourage!


Materials Used
- Remnant Felt
- Wooden Handles
- Leather
- Embroidery Thread

The Vessel Project - "Felt Sculptural Vase Holder"

What better way to start off the week than with another spectacular creation from a recent graduate from Humber College. Here is Melanie Macewen Dias and her Felt Sculptural Vase Holder.





This sculptural vase holder reminds us of the "Column" (1967 - 1968) by Ulysse Comtois (1931 - 1999). The interactive sculpture commissioned in 1968 can be seen in the National Gallery of Canada in the Garden Court. Like Comtois's "Column", Melanie has designed an interactive sculpture that allows you to manipulate the shape as you please. Using our remnant felt, she successfully cut individual pieces to size and arranged them in a stacked manner that could easily be manipulate to a variety of forms around your vase. The vase holder can be kept straight and in line or twisted to create lines that form a smooth curve or an irratic display of texture. This is truly a stimulating twist on the conventional thoughts of a vessel.
Materials Used
- Remnant Felt

The Vessel Project - "Wine Bottle Holder"

It is Friday everyone! What better way to start off your weekend that a little inspiration from The Vessel Project. Today we have a truly unique take on the wine bottle holder from Jacqueline Pernia, a recent graduate from Humber College!


Pop open a bottle of wine this weekend and put it in this contemporary approach to a wine bottle holder. What a fantastic way to work with the remnant felt materials. Taking a few scrap strips, Jacqueline figured out how to weave the felt strips together to create this really great vessel. Talk about an exciting twist on the traditional wine bottle holder! This vessel can also be used when the bottle is standing up as a drip stopper and can be configured in different ways depending on the sculptural result that you are looking for. We love the simple concept of this wine bottle holder and hope that it inspires everyone this weekend that anything can be done with felt!


Materials Used
- Remnant Felt
- Thread
