Polypore Slug

The sculpture had already been completed when I went about the task of figuring out what I’d made. A polypore is shelf or bracket fungus. And while I do equate this planimal with a sea creature, “slug” had a nicer ring than “nudibranch”.

This piece is covered in soft merino and was made with both wet and needle-felting techniques.
