The Marvellous Creations of Gladys Paulus

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, Gladys Paulus Fox Maskthey’re theatre in themselves. Gladys Paulus Young Buck Mask

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.

    Slow craft? Well, some things are worth waiting for. Those masks are beautiful and the photography is superb.
