SHINY BLUE PILLOW COVER
These cushions were handwoven in a horizontal loom by one of Venezuela’s leading studios, recognized for their innovation in arts and sciences. Approaching research into materials as seriously and enthusiastically as production, Maria Eugenia and Eduardo of the Morero Workshop have been refining their art for over three decades. They now work alongside fourteen artisans and are constantly expanding their horizons, with train rides across Asia, sourcing trips around Venezuela and ongoing research in their creation.
Maria Eugenia and Eduardo are the artists behind the Venezuelan Morera Workshop – named after the tree which feeds the silkworm they get their thread from. Using five manual looms and one digital one, their enterprise is not merely a creative one but also epistemic – they are notable researchers into the weaving potentialities of materials such as cotton, wool, silk, copper fibers and plant matters. Melding a creative impulse with a natural curiosity, their experimental approach to production extends into dyeing, where they try established and novel means to achieve the best colours. Red and pink hues come from cochineal beetles and Anoto seeds, whilst are achieved with the extract of anil leaves.
UNESCO has recognized the couple for their contribution to Creativity in Design and Weaving in Silk. The boundless enterprise of the Morero Workshop shows in their pieces, which speak volumes of the dedicated and attributions of the creators. These objects are modern classics: the tokens of extensive research and signifiers of the creation of knowledge.
