November/December 2000 - Rug Hooking

A feature story appearing in Rug Hooking magazine. In addition to being a featured article, this rug appeared on the cover.

Opening Paragraph:

Anyone who works in a two-dimensional medium knows the challenge of making flat objects appear three-dimensional. We rug hookers are no exception. Fine-cut hookers use color, highlights, shadows and specific hooking techniques to bring their motifs to life and give them shape and depth. These methods fall under the broad category of fine shading.
