Hi! I’m Jen Manuell and I am FISH EYE SISTERS.
I want to welcome you to my virtual studio and I hope you enjoy your visit. Here is a bit about what I make and do and what you will find on these pages.
For as long as I can remember, I've been playing with colour and I've loved trying to figure out new ways of doing things. Add in my love of textiles and dyeing wool, and my current line of truly one-of-a-kind woollen home goods is the glorious outcome.
I don't want to make the same thing over again - I'm not a machine! So I’m creating unique arrangements and combinations of colour and pattern every time I make something. No duplicates.
Having a big stash of materials helps keep everything fresh, and I’m always adding to my wide variety of patterns and textures of wool fabrics. I break down a lot of this material into smaller pieces to hand dye and create exponentially more colours to use in my work. My second favourite ingredient is gorgeous Japanese cotton fabrics. I combine these two main materials with my own patterns, designs and methods, to create timeless, functional products.
Pillows and blankets, table mats and runners, plus a limited number of hand-hooked pillows and rugs, are all made with care and attention to detail. Created by me, in my home studio, just north of Huntsville, Ontario, Canada.
You will find a selection of these products here, but if you don't see quite what you're looking for, just ask! (I almost always have items waiting to be photographed.)
I love to hear from you!
