While I have been visiting Venice in 2018, I admired the decorated windows of the houses and took some pictures for inspiration. Back home, I edited the photographs and had them printed on fabric. Then, I began to stitch onto the pictures, emphasizeing elements and adding further items as I went along. After three pictures were worked on, I realised that the heart symbol was a recurring object and thus decided to incorporate it into all window portraits. The heart and other symbols turn the pictures surreal; and each window opens the way to another allegory…

For more information about the window pictures and their symbolism, visit my blog.

Claudia Jaeggi Textile Art

Welcome!

I am a part-time Swiss textile artist and special education teacher. As hand embroidery is used in both arts and crafts, I like to create higher end wall art and sculptures as well as unique accessories and home decor for your personal use.

Where possible, I use upcycled materials, acid free papers, color fast yarns and high quality picture frames.

Don’t hesitate to contact me in case you have an idea that you want me to translate into stitch – I am happy to do commissions!
