Tea de Both

T head filcane kreacije

Tea de Both rođena je u Zagrebu i završila Školu primijenjene umjetnosti u smjeru aranžera/dekoratera 1984. Par godina kasnije preselila se u London i završila lutkarski smjer u London College of Furniture. U to vrijeme izrađivala je lutke tehnikom sličnom papier mache, te ih prodavala na art marketima u Greenwich-u i Camden town-u. Nakon 20 godina provedenih u Londonu, vratila se u Zagreb gdje je otkrila filcanje i to joj je otvorilo bezbroj mogućnosti raznog kreativnog izražavanja i sada, kombinirajući vještine i iskustvo, spremna je pokazati što sve može stvoriti.
Sve njene kreacije izrađene su od 100% vune, tehnikom suhog i mokrog filcanja. Unikatnost njenih kreacija je u tome što je svaka filcana životinja napunjena lavandinim sjemenkama i na kraju nakapana lavandinim eteričnim uljem. Izrađuje i razni nakit kao što su narukvice, broševi i ogrlice, te vrlo unikatne vunene torbe. No, njeno najveće zadovoljstvo je u kreiranju 3D portreta ljubimaca.

T head felted creations
Tea de Both was born in Zagreb where she finished Secondary school of Arts as a window dresser in 1984. In her early twenties she moved to London in UK and finished a toy making course in London College of Furniture. In those days she was making dolls and selling them on markets in Greenwich and Camden town. After 20 years she moved back to Zagreb and discovered needle and wet felting technique and now combining her skills and experience she is ready to show what she can create.
What makes her creations unique is that she felted lavender buds into the center of each animal, then each was scented with organic lavender oil, so it can be used as air fresheners. Also she makes a range of felt jewellery consisting of bracelet, brooches and necklaces and various one of a kind handbags. Furthermore, she creates a custom pet portraits which she loves the most.
