Felt Forms


Dutch artist Claudy Jongstra does incredible and surprising things with wool, felting it to create large-scale architectural settings. Her massive wall-coverings, rugs, and architectural tiles are created by hand in her beautiful Friesland studio, where she keeps and shears her own sheep. Her work – on walls at both Lincoln Center, and the Barnes Foundation (detail image shown), adds a soft, textural element to the clean, minimal spaces its inhabits.
