Morrel, along with partner Aaron Levin, is the force behind a line of “re-birthed” home furnishings, accessories, statutes, and um, needlepoint-covered trophy head sculptures that make creative reuse of vintage found tapestries and other reclaimed objects.
Reads Morrel’s online bio:
Frédérique was troubled by the fact that her grandmother’s needlework was discarded when she passed away. Ever since, she has been obsessed with the idea of making them come back to life, obsessed with the redemption of her grandma’s ardent work. She went on to invent a whole new artistic concept in order to ‘decycle’ (put into a new life cycle) un-justly, unrecognized, anonymous and devalued pop artifacts.
Delight your eyes with a visit to the Frédérique Morrel website where you can peruse her whole collection and place a custom order if you're so inclined. Truly lovely stuff...
