The article focuses on works of several felt artists presented at the 1st International Felt Symposium, hosted by the International Feltmakers Association in Denmark in 1990. The felts include Maisa Tikkanen's large circular wool felt "Corona," Gunilla Paetau Sjoberg's "Jungfru av eld och av intet," Silja Puranen's felt series titled "Continuous Growth," and Katharina Thomas' "Das Geweabe erinnert sich II." Drawing from the art works, the author believes that the artists are connecting both the past and the future through the symbolic associations embedded in their felts.
