Material: Textiles | Location: Devon
Full time artist Jessica Geach founded Ruby Cubes back in 2015 as a way to fully explore her lifelong passion for textiles. Having always had an innate love for tactile objects, Jessica soon discovered that her greatest passion lay in creating 3D objects that were both tactile and purposeful.
“My favourite material to work with is unbleached cotton rope. The way it is braided makes it so soft, tactile & fantastically strong, whilst still being wonderfully flexible. I am endlessly fascinated by the process of turning piles of braid into tactile, purposeful bags, baskets and homewares.
Each piece is stitched together by me on an old industrial machine. Most of my inspiration is derived from the amazing diversity of my surrounding landscape. Living in Dartmoor means that I am never far from breathtaking hilltops, or refreshing river walks.”
