UNDER THE SEA
Anemone is a rug inspired by a painting in which the brushstrokes imitate the slow movement of sea anemones.
The different shades of blue, red, grey or green of the watercolor are perfectly transposed with wool.
Each shape is carved out by hand into the wool to add some definition to the design, and to transcribe the movement of the watercolour.
