Studio Claudy Jongstra
The Dutch artist, Claudy Jongstra (1963) creates tapestries and large-scale textile art installations.
The beauty of nature, raw materials and the exploration of crafts such as spinning, carding and weaving constantly inspire and help Jongstra bring a sense of beauty and belonging to public spaces. She works together with architects and clients around the world to create unique and tactile pieces.
Claudy Jongstra and her team maintain control over the whole process from raw materials to tapestries. Committed to the value chain of creation, they raise their own sheep, keep bees, cultivate a botanical garden and grow their own plants for dyes. They leave no waste, respect nature and exemplify their philosophical values of utilizing local resources and traditional skills.
Claudy Jongstra’s oeuvre is founded on ethical values. Her work and life are inspired by stewardship, the promotion of bio-diversity and the preservation of a natural and cultural heritage. Together with her compagnon, Marleen Engbersen, they constantly explore how to create a softer, more human atmosphere. Enjoyment, time and dedication are the most important ingredients in creating these works of art.
In 2011 Jongstra showed her pieces at the headquarters of the United Nations in New York and at the World Economic Forum in Davos in 2012.
Claudy Jongstra has been awarded the Prins Bernhard Cultuurfonds Prijs for Applied Arts and Architecture and has recently received two awards in the Netherlands for sustainability.
