willow knows is a home for textiles, objects, & creative services of artist and designer Jessica Breed. Jess’s approach to design explores an intuitive, experimental way of working. An individual, alternative approach in the design process creates pieces that can be seen as unique objects.
In my work, I am interested in exploring the human relationship to the natural world - the way in which we interact with each other, with all living and non-living things, and with forces that we do not have control over. My hope is to create visual representations that seek to make sense of the unknown. I am interested in exploring energetic channels of all beings and objects, inspired by our inner landscapes and the way in which these characteristics transcend to create our physical makeup and our understanding of the outside world.
The work I create is lead by the unpredictable nature of chance and my approach is to step aside and lend the role of the artist to the relationship between the elements which I bring together – water, heat, pigment, fiber. I hope to capture a moment in time in which the silence between two elements may normally go unnoticed, or otherwise be forced into perfect completion.
I am a mother, wife, certified yoga teacher, attuned in Reiki Level One & Two, and a student of Ayurveda. These roles, studies, and practices highly encourage, inspire, and are incorporated into my work.
