Item details

Ojai, California-based artist Sally England was commissioned by the Freehand Hotel in Chicago to do macramé wall pieces for each of their rooms. She is inspired by the wabi-sabi of nature, the transformative capacity of architecture and interiors, and, as seen here, the bold shapes of 1970's graphic design.

Meet the Creator

Sally England is a fiber artist currently living and working in Ojai, California. Raised in the midwest, she received her BA in Communication Arts from Grand Valley State University in West Michigan, and later attended PNCA's Applied Craft & Design MFA program in Portland, Oregon. It was during her time in graduate school in 2010 that she was inspired to further her work in soft sculpture by exploring a new form of macramé (knot-based textile construction) for who we are today. Her ensuing large-scale modern macramé work using thick white rope became a catalyst for the recent revival of the craft, inspiring many to learn or relearn the art of knotting. Her fiber-based installations and hangings have been presented in exhibitions and environments in the U.S and abroad, as well as in numerous online and print journals. In 2016 she had her first solo exhibition at The Grand Rapids Art Museum, titled ‘New Knots.’”
