I just love these. They’re made by Gladys Paulus, a Somerset based artist, who describes feltmaking as a slow craft. I think her masks are more than art, they’re theatre in themselves.
She’s so dedicated to what she does that she has her own dye allotment. On her blog she describes planting madder (Rubia tinctorum) seeds and waiting three years for the harvest.
Most of the photography on her Etsy shop is by Bella West. It’s highly unlikely that I’ll ever be able to buy a mask but I might just stretch to buying a print.
