Jan van de Klundert

Flax Weaver

Maker of flax forms, Jan (pronounced Yaan) is based in Papamoa in the Bay of Plenty. His weaving is distinctive and original. Jan’s innovative work illustrates the flexibility and versatility of flax weaving as a sculptural medium.

“Jan’s background is as a trained mathematician and teacher. His life experiences in both European and Pacific cultures have produced the exciting combination of a highly trained and disciplined mind with the intuitively developed forms which take the shape from basic ideas.” Averil Herbert
