About The Artist

W. John Jameson • New York, NY
Clothing & Accessories • WHOLESALE AVAILABLE

The work begins with my passion for travel. Fluidly weaving yarns together, I create physical, interwoven craft that creates a human connection between the maker and user. The experiences exploring six of the seven continents forge my creativity and help me connect to the diversity of history, arts, culture, nature and, most importantly, people. I work on a foot powered, 8-harness loom and approach each day with a sense of beauty, ritual, and tradition.

Q&A with the Artist

Tell us how your work is made.

My work is produced manually on an 8 harness American made loom on the Upper Eastside of Manhattan.

What makes you passionate about the medium you work with?

The joy of working with fiber and seeing delighted collectors. Fiber offers endless designs, from fuzzy, nubby, textural handspun wool to nylon gold sequins.

What is something unique about you or your practice?

My handprinted silk ribbon fringe adds to the enjoyment of the pieces.
