SAM CROW
Sam is a Brooklyn based textile artist as well as a member of the Heirloom family who crafts hand tufted rugs. Sometimes functional, but not always, her work seeks to expand the notion of what a rug is and its purpose in our modern culture. Focused on the laborious process of creating textiles and the right of passage each maker earns, she works to find a balance between new technology and past tradition with a clear conscience. Her visual imagery seeks to combine these concepts of slow traditional American craft with a digital and modernized view of shaping, color, and function.
