This beautiful and intricate work by artist and designer Jess Wheeler was made by the artist during lockdown in Covid-19. While spending time in rural North Wales her practice has had to adapt to a different environment and a change in materials. Jess’ works on board came about as a result of her running out of paper, and finding a surplus of ply in a barn. This has created a surprising unity between her works on paper and her handmade homewares.
