Large Beinn Cushion by The Good Shepherd. handmade grey, white and black felted wool.

Inspired by a residency at the Bothy Project, these cushions bring to life images from Emily Watts' time living in the Cairngorms in Scotland. Contrasting monolithic natural forms, with simplified design, each piece is a reflection on seclusion and the desire to cuddle up and hide away. This piece is particularly evocative of the landscape, with fantastic line and form in varying natural hues. The polyurethane details contrast against the natural British wool and reflect the nature of materials often found in agricultural settings.

Process

Knitted on a domestic frame, operated by hand, this piece has been made entirely in-house. This particular design is achieved by weaving two sets of yarn simultaneously in different directions. The knit is then felted, cut and hand-sewn together.
