"I’ve had a fascination with the cat’s paw motif for many years. After hooking them in many sizes and ways, I decided that I wanted to explore the design in a prodded rug. As I needed a way to hold the cat’s paw flowers and I grew up around my grandparent’s carnival glass collection, I placed them in a prodded version of a carnival glass bowl."
