Jessica de Barco 2I am a textile artist specializing in the creation of handmade felt.
I take inspiration from nature and the natural world as well as modern architecture and design.

I am inspired by the intrinsic beauty, simplicity, Jessica de Barco 3intricacy and adaptability of nature and my observations and experiences of colour, pattern and form in and around me are reflected in my work.

I combine felting with other textile techniques such Jessica de Barco 5as embroidery to create elegant and unique homewares, lighting and furniture as well as textured wall hangings and accessories such as cards, brooches and jewellrey.
While my designs and asthetic are contemporary, I love to work with traditional techniques. As I felt I Jessica de Barco 6connect with an age old tradition of women and men creating clothing, shelter and adornments from the most wonderful fibre of all – wool.
