Claudy Jongstra’s artworks reimagine and reconstruct textile production systems, demonstrating deep respect for the interwoven narratives of materials, landscape, and making processes. 
At Studio Claudy Jongstra, situated in the rural northern Netherlands, a flock of rare indigenous Drenthe Heath sheep and a biodynamic botanical research garden are the sources of her artistic materials. In the color laboratory, fresh botanics are distilled into natural pigment and applied to raw wool. In the atelier, Jongstra composes these uniquely personal materials into powerful, large-scale artworks and architectural installations. A highly innovative artist, Claudy Jongstra has created new territory for wool as a contemporary artistic medium.
