Hand Felted Scarf

Miriam Abramowitsch was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, the daughter of a concert pianist. Following in her father's footsteps, she devoted her life to music and has experienced a long and fulfilling career as a singer and teacher of voice. She has also had a lifelong love for color, style and texture (as a child she wanted to be a clothing designer). Three years ago, having never before attempted any visual art medium, she became interested in felting and took a number of classes at Deep Color in Kensington. Since then she never looked back and has been creating and selling her colorful felted scarves throughout the Bay Area and beyond. The artist states: Felt is created by the alchemy of wool fiber with warm water and pure olive oil soap to produce a versatile material that ranges from spider-fine and soft to thick and strong, depending on its intended purpose. I design my scarves in a number of different ways. I mostly use a blend of wool and tencel fiber, which produces a soft, crinkled, shimmery effect. Right now I especially enjoy creating playful latticework scarves in a riot of different color combinations, and felting a variety of shapes and colors onto lengths of silk chiffon or hand dyed habotai silk.
