Moroccan Vessels, 31" x 33", #4-, 6-, and 8-cut wool on linen. Designed and hooked by Sharon A. Smith, Minneapolis, Minnesota, 2010.
What do a Russian village, a grouping of Moroccan pots, and a woman riding a chicken have in common? All these images have been hooked into rugs by world traveler, Sharon Smith.
Rug hooker and designer Sharon Smith always wanted to travel to faraway lands. Born and raised on a farm near Jordan, Minnesota, she collected stamps as a child and fell in love with the foreign countries they revealed to her.
