Wool is Cool
Pieter van der Werf is a Dutch textile designer & visual artist based on the West Coast in Scotland. He designs and creates large scale art pieces and interior design products made exclusively with Scottish wool.
Pieces include bespoke architectural items together with wool murals and a lighting range using LED technology.
Pieter's visual arts practice spans the last 30 years producing conceptual art programmes, making sculptures and leading creative content in development projects. He exhibited in Sydney at Sculpture by The Sea using seaweed as a core material and has long been interested in working with natural and - sometimes - overlooked materials.
Orains designs are in private collections internationally, including the USA, Australia, The Netherlands and the UK.
Orains means orange in Gaelic, the colour of creativity.
