Gillian promotes her fine handmade felt vessels trading under the name of “Pantoufles”, which relates to the emotions behind her work.
Each vessel is unique, having been hand crafted using the traditional wet rolling technique and a range of luxury natural fibres, including merino wool, silks and native breed wools, the felted vessels have a tactile quality that is hard to resist!

The vessels are soft, light weight and, unlike ceramics, unbreakable, making them ideal for contemporary modern interiors. The smooth tactile walls are made of the highest quality wool, which invite you to touch them, to enjoy the tactile experience moving away from sight alone. Your eye is led into the vessel for a visual contrast of colour or embellishment.
Pantoufle designs combine colour, pattern and texture, often embellished with embroidery and appliqué.
