Wonderfully Woven Wall Hangings

April 03, 2014

Weaving has become wonderfully cool again. The fiber arts world is making a statement with these beautifully colored, wonderfully woven wall hangings. These are not just made from fibers. Some artists weave in metal, beads, buttons, and even wood; creating amazing 3-dimensional textures. Some are even dipped dyed after being woven.

Robert Dougherty and Janelle Pietrzak from AllRoadsDesign.com are artists that have come together to create some amazing pieces. At their creative workshop and textile studio in L.A., they combine wood, metal, fiber and reclaimed materials to create objects, site specific installations and custom furniture.  These are some of their woven wall hangings, found at anthropologie.  (http://www.anthropologie.com)

Maryanne has completed many commissioned pieces for commercial and private clients. Check out her site MaryanneMoodie.com and some of her work below.
