Blue Ocean by Linda Celestian is an embodiment of the ocean. A natural process called nuno felting marries wool and silk to make the fabric of this sculpture. Dye is poured on the fabric and allowed to evaporate to create natural markings. Celestian’s background in Fashion Design comes through in the graceful forms that interact to create this peaceful and diaphanous piece.
