Miriam Verbeek

It’s a sunny 5 degrees outside today so no wonder I’m drawn to the warm softness of artist and teacher Miriam Verbeek’s jewellery and objects. Wool, for life and death, is felted along with fibre and fabric at her home studio using traditional techniques of water, soap and friction to create beautiful, comforting tactile forms.

‘Nature is astonishing, moved, changed, destroyed and an inexhaustible source of inspiration for Miriam. Also things that present themselves in her personal life and events that touch her like the changing landscape play a role in her work.’
