Lisa Nilsson, Quilling, Carpet

Artist Lisa Nilsson uses a centuries-old technique called quilling to painstakingly create intricate textile patterns with compact rolls of Japanese mulberry paper.  Her latest artworks Jardine and Gospel are inspired by the patterns of an Islamic carpet and an 8th century gospel cover.  8 months of work went in to creating the 27” x 34” carpet piece.
