The barred owl is a silent and efficient nocturnal predator. It has been known to hunt everything from mice to full grown cats! This life size barred owl is handmade using a technique called needle felting which involves using a barbed needle to sculpt with wool. Through a painstaking process of repeatedly poking a clump of wool I can cause it to become more and more compact until it becomes a solid object. This I can shape to my liking with carefully placed pokes of the barbed felting needle. Because wool is itself a fiber, this technique allows me to create realistic animal fur and feathers.
Made to order in the United States. Life size sculpture of a barred owl. Crafted from wool and steel wire. Please note: because the designer is a farm and hand-makes every piece himself, delivery times may vary significantly depending on the time of year.
