MZ Collection No. 12 Original from Rug Star and Visual Artist Mary Zio
Rug Star in Cooperation With Artist Mary Zio Present the MZ Collection
Rug Star, in partnership with Contemporary Abstract Expressionist Artist Mary Zio have produced 14 rugs, each a beautiful 50/50 blend of Wool and Silk which reflects the artist philosophy:
I play with color variations within organic and geometric forms, sometimes tightly contained, and sometimes in a free flowing, expressionistic style. When I'm painting, I'm seeing to the dialogue between colors, and exploring those relationships.
Influenced and embodying the words of Josef Albers "Art is not an object, art is an experience" Mary Zio and Rug Star have taken that experience to a new medium. Produced in Rajasthan in a 3mm pile height, each piece in the collection is a feast for the eyes, and to the touch. We are pleased at Christiane Millinger to currently have three of these incredible pieces, and can custom order them in any size.
Rug Star rugs produced in India are made with what is called a Persian Weave. By using a single thread to produce each knot the refinement of the design can be controlled to almost a pixelated level. With this method the final washing process is integral to realize the ultimate vision of the design.
