Nevada Rag Rug Weaver - Audio Interview With Mary Ann Plavi

Guest Author - Debra Conrad

Listen to the Interview with Rag Rug Artist Mary Ann Plavi

Nevada Rag Rug WeaverI made it! I have officially walked and shopped the 'Arts in the Park' Festival in Ely, Nevada.

This weeks interview is with Mary Ann Plavi of Spring Creek, Nevada. This lady of many talents sells her 'magic carpets' at several shows in the area. The fact that she has some really neat ceramics for sale is a bonus.

Mary Ann - contact info:

The colorful carpets or rag rugs are what draw your attention and beg you to touch. Digging through the piles of rugs, runners and place mats is so much fun... it's like finding a trunk of your grandmothers linens in the attic and reveling in the softy goodness of each lovingly folded piece.

What makes these rugs so much fun, are the "ingredients". Mary Ann creates these little treasures from sheets and quilt tops. Yes, the more colorful the better, in fact... children's sheets are her favorite!

Mary Ann graciously sat with me for over an hour and shared her creative life. She gave up the goods on what it is like to create her artistic crafts and sell them... not for the money, because as she will admit... the pay ain't great, but for the love of crafting and meeting people.

She spends many days on end alone in her garage/studio - dying, sorting, tearing and weaving... oh and did I mention she also is a photographer, painter and ceramicist? She will be sharing her thoughts about craft as therapy and how she jumped from fabric artist into the potters wheel... and didn't even see it coming.

These are the rugs I purchased... I couldn't help myself. :)

The Rug called "Loopers"... you have to listen to find out why....

They are the softest rugs you have ever felt and would be so cozy underfoot in the bathroom or laundry.

Email Mary Ann... and ask for a Looper Rug.
