What I want to be when I grow up

I recently found textile artist Claudy Jongstra and am extremely inspired by her work.  She raises her own flock of endangered sheep, harvests the wool and then hand makes felt for her tactile works.  She works with such architects as Stephen Holl and Rem Koolhaas for large scale projects within their buildings.  By working in an autonomous and sustainable manner she oversees the entire process from raw materials to end product including the use of natural dyes.
