Ulrike Isensee

Ulrike Isensee believes that one of the reasons for her creative freedom and for the pleasure she derives from experimentation is because she studied art before training to become a master weaver. This textile artist imaginatively uses unconventional materials and sophisticated techniques that are impossible with industrial production methods. Her hand-woven shawls, which can be transparent, contrastingly colored or elegantly black and white, often look like expressive jewelry for the body. This and their painstaking fabrication make each piece an exclusive and unique item. Ulrike Isensee is also passionate about her wall objects, for which she won the Lotte Hofmann Memorial Award for Textile Art in 2014. Prices range from 60 to 200 euros.
