Theodore Ellison "art glass window" carpet

by Tracy Davis on March 14, 2009

We recently did a project with stained glass artisan Theodore Ellison, who designed a carpet for a private client to coordinate with his “Ashley” art glass window.

The window:

The carpet design:

The carpet was made in India of pure New Zealand wool, which is both soft to the touch and very durable. And of course, RUGMARK-certified free of child labor. I’ll post a picture of the completed carpet as soon as I can.

I thoroughly enjoyed working with Ted and look forward to doing more in the future.

I enjoyed the way the artist reinterpreted his stained glass window into the rug pattern without directly copying his original design, but repeating and echoing the elements in a harmonic and most pleasing fashion.  It’s elegant. Well done Ted – and Guildcraft!
