Marjolein Dallinga

This is a surreal piece of clothing by Marjolein Dallinga looking quite strawberry like but also very like an iridescent sea creature. Marjolein Dallinga originally trained in painting and graphic design in Holland.
Then she moved and settled in Canada where she gradually became more interested in textiles but particularly felt, making small items such as hats, bags and shawls. However her work came to the attention of the Cirque du Soleil and the costume pieces that she has created for this group have made her work evolve far beyond  any traditional felt craft. Now she works on costume and felt sculptures that are like life forms themselves.
