Daria Lvovsky is a Belarusian craftswoman based in Ness Ziona, Israel. She creates extraordinary needle-felted animal sculptures in miniature that sometimes look like true taxidermy works.
My works have become the ultimate toys for my own children and the children of my friends. My way to the needle felting was long and interesting. In attempts to find the most expressive materials, I have tried wood, ceramics, and even metal… I discovered this amazing world three years ago through the Waldorf kindergarten which my elder daughter attended. It is hard to pinpoint what is making them so attractive to kids and grown-ups alike: the endless scope of imagination, the distinctive texture of the wool, or the unique colors, so different from those that surround us. Moreover, all the materials I use are eco-friendly!Daria Lvovsky
