Artist Crafts Large Beautifully Textured Weavings You Can Hang on Your Wall

Textile Art Woven Wall Hanging by Tammy Kanat

Fiber artist and nature lover Tammy Kanat creates large-scale textile art inspired by the Australian landscape. Each stunning wall hanging is made from hand-woven plush yarns and chunky wool of various thicknesses, resulting in highly textural, oval-shaped, earth-toned pieces. Kanat explains, “For me, weaving projects a mood. I follow my instinct to create designs that feel balanced. I am very visual, always taking note of my surroundings and believe this is reflected in my work.”

The artist’s larger-than-life works resemble various organic shapes found in nature such as cross-sections of ancient tree trunks or the inside geological formations like agate. Each colorful ring is represented in soft textile surfaces that sprawl out from central starting points and are framed within their round wooden looms. Continuously experimenting with her materials, Kanat believes, “weaving is an ever evolving and timeless art for and an enchanting way to share the impact of her surroundings.”

Kanat began weaving in 2011 after a 12-year career as a jewelry designer. After enrolling in an Australian Tapestry Workshop, she learned the complex skill of tapestry weaving and fell in love with the craft. Since then, she’s produced commissions for local and international clients and even had her own solo exhibition in 2014. You can find more of Kanat’s mesmerizing work on her website and Instagram.
