Fibre & Wood (2015)

Available worldwide

Fibre & Wood is a portrait of two master craftspeople -- felting artist Sanna Rahola and woodcarver Douglas Drdul. They work independently on their unique creations featuring both traditional Finnish felting techniques Sanna learned in childhood from her nanny, and woodcarving methods taught Douglas by a Finnish master carver.

“We have separate workshops and we approach the work so differently, yet it becomes one piece,” she says. Douglas adds, “It’s a happy combination. I see two fiber artists because wood is all fiber, so we’re two fiber artists working together.” Sanna agrees, “I see two pieces of work that fit together like a puzzle. I see harmony.”

I really adore these focused short documentaries. Its like opening a window into the life of an artist just long enough to glimpse the joy and passion. It inspires me.

A wonderful example of how to live simply in harmony with yourself and nature. Balance is a main theme of the video, the contrasts are accented nicely. I really enjoyed it.
