15,573 - Magic Carpet ($55.43)

Width: 11.75" Length: 9"

Materials/Techniques: I used vintage rug parts and part of a wool scarf and buttons with some machine and hand sewing. It is thread signed.

Artist Statement: These rug parts I got from a rug dealer. He sold vintage rugs and if they were too worn he took the good pieces and covered a foot stool or something else. I asked him about small pieces and he gave me a few. After having them for some time I asked myself what they should be....... a magic carpet. So there I go again. My imagination said we could go anywhere, that's pretty nice since I stay in my studio most of any free time I have. Anywhere, anywhere we can go anywhere.
