Cloverleaf Art and Fibre

We are a unique and ever-evolving project including a flock of registered Shetland sheep, and featuring the work of Linda Glowacki, a visual artist who has fallen in love with fibre. Linda's signature pieces are the stunning wall hangings needlefelted on handmade felt. We also produce one-of-a-kind accessories and felted sculptures; and supply fleece to local artisans. 
-Linda Glowacki and Margaret Brook

Artist's Statement:  The sheep, with their wonderful range of natural coloured fleece, earn their keep as a constant source of entertainment and inspiration. Linda says "It's all about the felt; the colours and shapes that emerge during the felting process dictate the subjects of the wall hangings. Once I visualize the images, the mental flywheels disengage and I become totally absorbed in the artistic process."  Each felt is a highly individual 'canvas'. When enhanced with needlefelted images, the spirit and substance of each subject is captured with a vibrancy difficult to achieve on canvas alone. Each work of fibre art is a delight not only to the eye, but to the fingertips. The designs are transferred straight from Linda's vivid imagination to the felt, without the use of patterns or sketches. Linda's deep connection to animals and the natural world is revealed in all her work.

“Drive a nail home and clinch it so faithfully that you can wake up in the night and think of your work with satisfaction,- a work at which you would not be ashamed to invoke the Muse”
-Henry David Thoreau

In our case, it would be the needle or other fiber tool. Drive it home! And, we all thank you for your words, left here to these good folks. Invoke your Muse!
