"I chose many alternate materials in order to enhance the stars in my rug. Shiny fabric, metallic yarns and many beads were used to achieve the effect of outer space. I chose the colors that were used by the scientists who gave each gas its hue. Many dye techniques were used: trans colors, dip dyes, and wandering. They enhance the piece by using contrast to give the effect of distance."
- Michele Micarelli, Celebration Hall of Fame 2018
