Jacqueline James is an award-winning weaver who specialises in making individually designed hand dyed and woven rugs and wall hangings for distinctive interiors. Inspiration for new designs comes from everywhere, but she is particularly inspired by the colours and patterns found in nature, landscapes and architecture.
As a rug weaver Jacqueline is part of the International Weaving Community; thus, it continues an important heritage craft tradition. Her work is found in public and private collections in the UK and USA. Each weaving is exclusively made in Jacqueline's York studio using British rug wool, cotton and linen.
"My one of a kind rugs / wall hangings are mainly contemporary in style using geometric patterns and stripe rhythms. Inspiration for new designs comes from everywhere, especially the all the colours and patterns I see in nature, landscapes and architecture.
As a practising textile artist I embrace the concept of weaving as an art form. As a rug weaver I am usually defined as a craftsperson. I design with colour and pattern and construct with form and texture. I endeavour to create a woven item which is both visually interesting and structurally practical. The weaving work I do is made to be durable enough for a floor rug, but their graphic quality makes them suitable for the wall."
