Rufus Porter Big Ship Hand Hooked Rug



I’m continuing to play with motifs typical to the muralist Rufus Porter.  Here I combined the big ship and watch tower, and I love the suggestion of the ship off in the distance.  I learn something new with every rug I hook.

This piece is hooked with a combination of new and recycled wool, recycled cashmere, and the sails are recycled bits of antique linens that were no longer able to serve their initial purpose.  All the work is done on a linen foundation, and I’ve finished the rug so that it may be used on the floor, hung on the wall, or as runner/mat on the table.

Measures about 30″ x 19″.

Please allow time for me to make this for you prior to shipping, and do remember that every handmade piece is a one of a kind.  Please also allow for some variation from the photos.
