Presentation of the artist Adélie Fond, who will introduce you to felting wool on silk
My name is Adélie Fond and I create clothes, accessories and textile sculptures.
My work is essentially based on a technique that is dear to me: the felting of wool, ancestral technique which consists in creating a nonwoven fabric by agglomeration then friction of animal fibers.
I mainly use merino wool and alpaca wool, to which I include various coupons of fabrics and silk fibers.
The so-called "felt nuno" material is a hybrid fabric of wool and silk amalgamated.
I am largely inspired by the artistic movement of art nouveau, medieval costume and traditional japan.
The aestheticism of vegetal lines, textures and nuanced tones of terrestrial and aquatic fauna and flora are my main favorite themes.
My creations are inspired by the beauty of nature to which I pay tribute by sublimating it through a textile, sensory and dreamlike language.
