Heidi Bleacher is a Philly based florist and fiber artist who began creating felted sculptures to bring back the warmest memories of her youth. We adore these sweet mushrooms so evocative of our walks through the woods after a warm summer rain or childhood fairytales of magical lands.
Beginning with an armature of pipe cleaner, Heidi employs a needle to blend of 'felt' wool fibers into shapes. The armature under the felt makes each sculpture resilient and malleable, bringing a breath of life to her creations. The mushrooms are then capped in velvet to beautifully reflect light as dew might in the early morning on the velvety surface of a mushroom cap.
