Kieta Jackson “Vessel” 2017

Amazing brass and copper woven sculpture by Kieta Jackson, titled “Vessel”, 2017.

Kieta Jackson’s textile sculptures demonstrate two things, wonderful elegant containing forms and a sense of antiquity in another world and time. She works primarily with wires and sheet metal and builds vessels and forms of crocheted and woven fabric. ‘The process starts with a fine gauge wire which is then woven on a loom by hand, creating a malleable fabric which is manipulated into the sculptural identity.’

I am always thriving to create a harmonious relationship with material and forms so the sculptures resonate found artifacts, archaeological remains and elements from the sea’ While her pieces adopt shapes borrowed from unearthed objects she also distresses and applies patina’s to the surfaces of the metal, often leaving warped threads left hanging loosely, conveying deterioration and corrosion. We are left believing that her sensitive forms are ancient artifacts one would view in a museum, or have been long forgotten.

After graduating with a BA (Hons) degree from Norwich School of Art and design in 1999, Kieta has had a constant flow of Exhibitions Nationally and internationally. Gained an Award of Distinction from the 5th Baltic Biennial of Miniature Weavers, Poland, 2001 and had her work published in Jac Scott’s ‘Textile perspective in Mixed Media Sculptures’ 2003 and Fibre Arts Magazine, spring 2015. Kieta has established a unique area of practice by her use of textiles in metal.
