This piece is part of Erin's ETA 34 collection. In Erin's own words: "This body of work is a continuation of a body of felted work done in relief style that is focused of the idea of water, specifically the ocean, as sanctuary. The medium of felted wool is so fluid, creating the mass of a body and also sunlit watery depths. I started creating glimpses of the sea for these migrating humpbacks to take refuge in; appearing out of the water for just a moment before descending back out of sight."
