Sacred Datura

Stephanie Hoppe Handwoven Rugs



SACRED DATURA

Wool warp and hand-dyed wool weft
40 by 55 inches, $2,000


This rug was woven very simply in the age-old techniques of plain weave, with twining to outline and set off the petal shapes. The trumpet shape and pure color of datura blossoms has haunted me for years, together with their associations: poisonous jimsonweed, treasured hallucinogen … beauty, danger, unfathomable possibility.
