“Hello, my name is Yuliya Kosata, I am from Ukraine.
As long as I remember myself I loved to create things. First I was painting and sewing. Then it turned into photography and then on one of my trip to Nepal I fell in love with felted things. It was nearly 8 years ago when I first saw such unusual shapes and things I couldn’t even understand how could be made from wool. It was incredible. Since then I decided to try to do it no matter what. I started to explore felting in wool I discovered unique material for creativity alive and warm. It demands a lot of efforts and skills and it always has own way and lives own life which force me to follow its lead, rethink the ideas I had and sculpt sometimes very different from what i wanted but still magic and beautiful.
It’s hard to say what exactly gives me ideas. My mind is always filled with images whichever I I wanna create in reality. It’s never easy and always unpredictable but feeling of creating is cover all the hardship. Creating own world with own hands makes me feel like something from fairy tale and wonderland united in one.”
