CARPETS

Feathers freeform

Designer: Maarten de Ceulaer

hand-knotted cotton weave, Himalayan wool and pure silk Maarten De Ceulaer has always had an affinity for birds. Years ago, he came across the works of John James Audubon and John Gould and ever since has regularly used these illustrations as a source of inspiration. To create each image, De Ceulaer scans, digitally isolates and combines various birds together, often tweaking and morphing them into further abstraction. Shapes, colors, and textures are rearranged in enchanting and absorbing compositions. The collages are then translated into rich and sophisticated rugs, hand-knotted in Himalayan wool and silk. By varying the pile-height a sense of depth is added, emphasizing the feathers’ shapes.
