For the home of a musical family in Amsterdam Claudy Jongstra created the mural ‘Natural Melody’. The undulating landscape in vivid blues, pale tones and radiating gold is a beautiful example of Jongstra’s current spirited language. With whirlwind shapes, more peacefully flowing streams and silky undercurrents reflecting life’s own varied melody of peace and turmoil. The pigments of indigo, woad, weld, onion skin and walnut are further enhanced by benefiting from the different properties of the natural yarns. The silk, subtle and with a soft sheen contrasting with the voluptuous hair of the Drenthe Heath Sheep and interspersed with smooth merino wool and mohair gives the mural an added sculptural quality.


Seize 5,25 x 3,13 (m)


Material: wool Drenth Heath Sheep, merino wool, mohair, silk


Dyes: indigo, woad, weld, onionskin, walnut
