Felted Animals Imbue Old Brushes With New Life

Simon Brown – sometimes referred to as The Gentleman Felter – is a needle felt artist from a small small town on the Northumbrian coast in the United Kingdom. He sources worn out household tools such as brushes and thimbles and transforms these products into miniature scenes for his felted animals.

Brown finds old and heavily used brushes that not one person would look twice at and then brings them back to life with small creatures by making use of his needle felting technique.  A short, stiff brush becomes a tree branch for a perching owl, and a dense hair brush with swirling bristles forms a meadow for two rabbits.

Truly wonderful and charming. For more of his work definitely check out his Instagram.
