Vicki Diamond - Masks and More
Over the years Vicki Diamond has worked in a variety of artistic mediums, including wood, cement, encaustic, oil, alabaster, gourds, straw, and stone. However, after acquiring a llama, three alpacas, an angora rabbit, and two angora goats, she has turned in the past few years to creating with fiber, primarily by felting. Wet felting is an ancient craft that utilizes lubrication, agitation, and moisture to shrink and bond the fibers of wool together. Vicki washes, dyes, hand cards, then drum cards the fibers herself before felting them over silk or cotton into unique scarves and shifts. She also makes needle felted wall tapestries from the fiber and has a line of upcycled clothing. More of her artwork can be seen at: www.vickidiamond.com
