Vibrant silks

  • • Maja's work is the result of joyful experimentation
  • • She is married to the painter Richard Vogl
  • • She chose weaving after studying fine art

Maja Vogl lives near Regensburg with her husband, the painter Richard Vogl, in a former village school. The studios of the artist couple are also located here. While still a student, Maja did an internship with textile designer and master weaver Sigrid Reeckmann and trained under her after school. Following her training, she began to study painting at the Academy of Arts in Munich with Rudi Tröger. "Early in my studies, I decided that I preferred weaving because I can create a greater depth of colour through the fabric," explains Maja. As well as monochrome surfaces, she likes to work with free graphic patterns made up of individual threads or stripes in a different colour. With a great deal of joy for experimentation and tremendous technical skill, Maja pushes the limits of what is possible with a handloom.
