"Croi" Limited Edition Gold Silk, Grey Irish Wool Rug & Tapestry by Rhyme Studio

$14,000

About

Since the dawn of artistic expression, lions have played a prominent role in visual depictions and in defining humanity’s relationship with the natural and spiritual world. The early monastic Irish Art movement known as "Insula Art" was no different. The lion frequently represented an omnipotent being and in this design, with a many-colored breath that can breathe life into limbs. Against a backdrop of grey Irish wool, the profile of gold silk adds a lustrous and soft texture to our abstracted form of this mighty being. “The desire to capture a more contemporary interpretation of classical Irish art whilst celebrating the beauty of Irish wool and sustainable craftsmanship provides the foundation for these designs” says designer Claire McGovern. Composed of the finest traditionally spun pure Irish wool sourced from sheep in Galway and tufted by hand. Limited edition of 15. Pure Irish wool functional floor art or tapestry by Rhyme Studio. Shown here in 8’ square. Custom sizes and colors available upon request.

About the Maker

Rhyme Studio

Rhyme Studio is a Brooklyn based design manufacturer, interiors and art advisory. On a mission to breathe unique form, color and sustainable craftsmanship into the world of rug design, we source Irish wool for our rug collection from Galway sheep farms. It is processed at a historic 300 year old woolen mill, hand dyed using natural dyes by a 200 year old mill before tufted by hand into carpet at our rural Irish farmhouse studio. The OM Series derives from a 1600 year old alphabet called Ogham and features the rich deep naturally brown wool of the Irish Zwartbles sheep. Known for monumental inscriptions on standing stones, it is believed that Ogham or the "tree alphabet" was created by druids and scholars as a secret form of communication. Other collections include Limited Edition The Insula Series inspired by 7th Century Irish art and illuminated manuscripts which was considered a golden age for the arts in Ireland. "The Trinity Series" is a study of triangular forms and rich colours and a fourth design series entitled "Modernity" will debut in early 2021. Founder Claire McGovern has designed interiors, curated art and design installations and collaborated with many talented artists and designers. Her entrepreneurial days began with a critically acclaimed art and design gallery evolving into the interiors and design practice she operates from New York City today. Her office is proud to also represent the works of storm chaser Ian Sheldon and sculptor Helen O'Connell.
