“Sunny Day” was created by fiber artist Sally Ball by felting and embroidery with wool, bamboo, mulberry silk and hand spun yarn.

The fiber arts medium employs diverse materials -- from wool to acrylic -- and techniques -- embroidery, quilting, felting, etc. -- to produce two- and three-dimensional works of art. The pieces can be decorative or functional, but they each have different textures, and even different voices, depending on the source of the fiber and the process it undergoes.
