No Rain No Rainbows rug by Agustina Woodgate

Artist Agustina Woodgate, originally from Buenos Aires but now based in Miami, has made a collection of bear skin rugs with a difference. The six designs are made from teddy bear skins from donated stuffed animals. Woodgate explains the designs: “The process starts with the departure of the loving life objects have when they are in the hands of their owners. The rugs not only reference the personal histories of the toy’s owners, but investigate the rug as an object organising and displaying memories and lineages. In Eastern Cultures, the oriental rug centralises the living space in pattern, operating beyond utility to depict the spiritual and mental world in woven form.”
