Amber Pollett is a fibre artist. She works with sustainable natural raw fibres felted into home décor, art and accessories. Amber has been felting for over 10 years. In 2015 she took the leap and started working as an artist full time. Amber ‘s company Amber Goes Violet was founded in 2015 to market her felted creations and art.
Amber was born in Newfoundland and many of her pieces have a maritime feel. She gets inspired from the Canadian wilderness so native birds, insects and flowers are key components in her designs. Amber aspires to capture the beauty of nature in an ecofriendly manner. She is not formally trained but has been painting and exploring different art forms throughout her life.
Amber’s work is wet felted directly from raw fibres. Lambs wool is the main fibre. However, other raw fibres such as alpaca, mohair, silk, linen and bamboo are often incorporated to add texture and colour.
WHY WE'RE ONE OF A KIND
Everything I make comes from raw wool. The raw wool shrinks 25 - 30% when felted and the fibres shift and blend organically through out the process so I never know exactly what each piece is going to look like until its complete. So every piece is OOAK.
Lambs wool is the main fibre. However, other raw fibres such as alpaca, mohair, silk, linen and bamboo are often incorporated to add texture and colour.
