Mallory Zondag is a Mixed Media Fiber Artist located in the Lehigh Valley. She graduated from Pratt Institute with honors and degree and in Fashion design. While at Pratt she focused on creating handmade textiles through felting, weaving and printmaking for her collections. Since graduating, she has pursued a career as an independent artist and arts educator.
Her work ranges from felting and weaving to sculpture, metalwork, printmaking and painting, sometimes combining two or more of these mediums to form a single unique piece. The natural world informs her creations of dimensional textures and sculptural pieces, evoking images of mossy forest floors and patches of growth spreading across decaying structures. Each piece explores the ideas and themes of the natural world, entropy, balance and humanity’s place within it.
Mallory shares her passion for handmade one of a kind textiles through a variety of educational programs in addition to selling her custom made pieces. She teaches fiber art programs for a variety of schools and organizations in mediums ranging from felting to mixed media painting.
Many of these programs involve a collaborative element where the entire school works together on a single project. These programs bring an exciting and hands on artistic experience to the students as well as emphasizing community and collaboration through art.
Mallory has exhibited in galleries and participated in artist festivals and collective shows in New York and Pennsylvania and has participated in artist in residence programs in New York and Pennsylvania.
