The PIEDRA carpet collection is an exceptionally personal project. It represents the dialogue between two worlds, and two art forms. It takes the discourse of my own paintings, materializing them into contemporary carpets.
My PIEDRA series was inspired by the bare yet elemental power of Fuerteventura’s natural world. The sight of the dry rocky landscape stretching into the distant horizon, the ancient volcanoes reaching up into the sky, and the merging infinity of the blue sky and ocean. The interplay of mist and sand, which daily dressed the island in various shades of brown and blue. This magnificent world with its rich emptiness opened up a series of emotions and moods within me, transforming into abstract yet meaningful paintings during the years spent there. I aim to capture the variations of textures and visual structures of my paintings in three-dimensional forms on the carpets.
The carpets are crafted in a small hungarian workshop that employs traditional manufacturing techniques. Here the time stands still and the rugs are made with patience and attention to detail. The collection is characterized by experimenting with these traditional methods, such as using different yarn thicknesses and micro-macro patterns, which give the carpets a distinctive character and a special feeling walking them barefoot.
Those carpets are the beginning of a series. There are a lot of ideas under development, different drawings and patterns. The rugs are available in custom sizes and different colors as well.
Want to put it in your project? Get in touch if you wish to have a custom made rug. The rugs are ready for production in a month.
