Jennifer creates innovative textiles and craft pieces using natural and found materials. Through methods of weaving, waxing, trapping, embedding and stitching she creates unusual materials, which are then developed into garments and accessories. She often utilises plastics, papers and fabrics into her pieces. The works have the power to communicate ideas about recycling, as well as themes exploring the body. Her work is often inspired by literature.The work is non-functional and aims to encourage people to speculate on the nature of value.She enjoys the idea of working with disposable organic materials that are transient in nature, imbuing them with worth and creating something intriguing and of great beauty. ~ from JenniferCollier.co.uk.
