Feuer Und Wasser is a tiny and unique line of art wearables, created by textile artist and clothing designer Yekaterina Mokeyeva.

Yekaterina graduated the Moscow State University of Arts and Industry. Her exploration of various methods and mediums has led to a development of a more specific direction that sparked love in the realm of textile and fiber art.

As an extension to her education, she completed the junior and senior years at California College of the Arts in San Francisco, focusing on fashion design and textile. Partaking in a short summer study abroad program in London’s Central St. Martins College of Arts and Design gave her a new spectrum of inspiration as a clothing designer.

 

Statement

The main source of Yekaterina’s designs is the wilderness theme, and its organic connection to humanity’s symbiosis with nature. Her latest ideas are going beyond just the exploration of the vast variety of colors and textures of natural objects. Humans like to perceive themselves at competition with the natural world around them, when they should see themselves as a part of it no less than any other living being.

In nature, we should find comfort, protection and endless evolution of ourselves, for our progress lies in mimicry and adaptation to the surroundings of that world, much in a chameleon-like way. Fire and water (the meaning of feuer und wasser) are not mere elements of nature, but were always, and still are the indispensable skills acquired by mankind for the necessity of life and progressive skills. Felting is among the most primal and sacred of such skills, being born of the combination of water heated by fire to alter the form of wool, rendering the most minimal use of resources, but with the most versatility and interaction between humanity and nature. Therefore such interaction deems us as a part of our true biological environment.
