"Strange Fruit", 2020, 36cm wide by 63cm long

Large interactive macrame art in dark teal and chartreuse

Materials: recycled cotton cords and jersey yarn, wooden dowel.

This piece marks a breakthrough moment in my macrame art. I bring to you...interactive macrame. Hang it both ways, move the braids around, tuck them in, wrap them around, criss cross them. Do what you please. To put it in salesman speak: buy one and get -- at least -- TEN. Can you find more ways than ten ways to hang this up? Why did I even come up with something like this? I was irritated by the craft label being slapped on textile arts, and then I thought I would try to show how fibre art is also art by enploying the tool of the frame. Framing my textile art to imitate the "fine arts" was a low point. And finally I wanted to break free of the idea of art as holy. To be seen and not touched. This is an invitation to collaboration; let's co-create the art you choose for your home. You move furniture around and switch out old decor, so why should the art you choose be static? Let it reflect your mood. Symmetrically rational, chaotically assymetrical. You decide, I don't prescribe. While I was finishing this piece, Billy Holiday was playing on my Spotify. Serendipitous perhaps, so I named this work "Strange Fruit". It measures 36cm at its widest, and 63cm at its longest.



This is a unique piece of art. I have never repeated a design, and I will not reproduce this design either.

It is ready to ship, and comes with the rod/dowel pictured. All you need is a nail that is long enough to hold the dowel.

Please keep in mind that the photos were taken indoor, with a warm white ceiling bulb as illumination. Depending on where you decide to hang the work, you might find the hues just slightly warmer or cooler.

This piece is a unique statement that invites conversations about textures and colour palettes. It is my desire and artistic vision that it opens dialogues about waste and recycling.

This is a small/medium artwork, and is what your white wall needs. (No, it doesn’t need more black and white Scandinavian minimalist prints). Hang it above your bed, in your entryway, the side of your stairway, in the living room as part of a photo gallery, above the sofa, in your reading nook…


Fibre artworks come without nails, hooks, or screws. Please arrange for the appropriate method depending on your wall material. Most of my pieces are about 300 to 500 grams heavy.

For fibre artworks that are hung on a metal rod or wooden dowel, it might look curled, crinkled, wrinkled, or crumpled after you unpack. This is because of the packing and the transit. After you hang it up, check for any tangles, and untangle by hand. Pompoms can be reshaped with a few squeezes. Use a steamer to straighter the fibres, or use a wide-toothed comb. Avoid fine-toothed combs or detangling combs. After hanging, the fibres will relax and regain their original appearance.


Dust the artwork regularly. A simple shake will do the job. Do not wash or vacuum clean. Be careful not to pull with force. Fibre artworks with an elaborate and long fringe are not suitable for households with curious cats or grubby children’s hands, or for locations with strong sunlight or a draft. A more detailed care guide is included in the package.
