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.”
