Henar Iglesias grew up in her mother’s hat studio while she looked at her father’s paintings. She studied Mathematics at the same time as she was learning her mother’s trade. That was how she discovered the magic of feathers and realized that this art was disappearing in her country, so she decided to specialize in it. In Mexico she learned about the pre-Columbian tradition of the Amantecas, which opened the universe of the feather mosaic to her. She has worked as a feather artisan in the field of millinery and dressmaking, combining this profession with creating feathers for a French furniture author for 10 years. Since then, she has continued to explore feather design in decoration and sculpture. Before 2014, she participated in several group exhibitions at Bat Gallery and Espacio Valverde, both in Madrid. She has been nominated for the “Loewe International Craft Prize” in 2019.
