A call for craftmanship
As a textile artist, my mission is to create wall art that not only showcases the beauty of locally sourced wool but also raises awareness about the impact of our consumer culture on the environment. My wool work is a protest against the exhaustion of our earth and a call for more craftsmanship in our daily lives. I believe that true artistry begins with a deep respect for the materials we use. That’s why I start my creative process by sourcing my wool from local farmers, who work in harmony with nature.
My wall hangings of wool, invites you to touch and feel, your senses should be used. Here we can find answers for today’s big challenges.
The art of making
The Halona wall hangings are crafted using 100% untreated sheep wool sourced from different local sheep breeds in the Netherlands.
The sheep enjoy a happy and free life, and the wool is a rest product for their farmers or shepherds.
The wool is handcrafted through a wet felting process, which involves green soap and a lot of time, effort, and meditation.
Each piece is unique and contains lanolin, as well as some straw or pieces from the forest. The wool used is mulesing-free and comes from trusted sources in the Netherlands and Germany.
