This Large Macrame Wall hanging I made from about 1000 feet of 3 strand natural cotton rope. Its finished size is approx 3 1/2 feet by 4 feet.
There is something to be said about the physical act of making, or creating something with your own hands. It is so rewarding, especially in this day and age where most of what we interact with is digital, or on a device of some sort.
Everything I create starts as an idea that came from some sort of inspiration. Now turning that idea into a physical thing is something of true beauty. Every action is one step forward that begins to unveil something that began as inspiration and slowly becomes a reality. For me, each knot becomes part of a larger pattern. I love the process of making. It can be very therapeutic and just straight food for my soul!
Everyones creative process is different, but I love finding inspiration in my everyday surroundings, and in nature. Sometimes I sketch ideas for patterns and pieces and other times I love to experiment and play with the rope and see what comes forth.
For this piece, I had a vision in mind, and knot by knot it became everything I envisioned!
