I’m continuing to play with motifs typical to the muralist Rufus Porter. Â Here I combined the big ship and watch tower, and I love the suggestion of the ship off in the distance. Â 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. Â 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. Â Please also allow for some variation from the photos.
