Claudy Jongstra X Nyetimber

By: Claudy: 23-12-2022

Artist Claudy Jongstra and Nyetimber winemakers Cherie Spriggs and Brad Greatrix started a fruitful collaboration. Not only because fertile soil is essential for both the quality and taste of the wines and for the vibrancy and vitality of the color palette of Jongstra's wool felted works of art. As in 'Earth and Humanity in Harmony', which the artist designed especially for Nyetimber, the colors sparkle like wine.

They also share a common vision in the ways of working and producing. Nyetimber from the countryside in the south of England, where it makes sparkling wines from grapes from its own vineyard in a traditional, time-consuming way, Jongstra from the northern Frisian countryside, where she creates her wool felted artworks in a labour-intensive, manual way with local sheep's wool from rare Drenthe heath sheep and dye plants from her own garden.

Cheers to the love for the craft and nature and watch the video Nyetimber made with Claudy Jongstra:
