Elk + Lotus by Courtney Schrader
I create unique wall art, and decor pieces which are lovingly hand made using natural, unbleached Australian cotton, and timbers found in the Macedon Ranges, and Surf Coast regions of Victoria, Australia.
Each Elk + Lotus piece is one of a kind. I do not follow any patterns, nor re-create designs, so you can be assured that your art piece is totally unique. My favourite part of the creative process is letting knots and combinations flow from my fingers, and seeing the unique beauty that unfolds.
Every wall hanging takes many hours to complete and contains hundreds, if not thousands of individually tied knots. I am primarily a self-taught textile artist, but I have also had the pleasure of intensive learning from some amazingly talented and well known macrame artists. Through this education, my techniques and style have evolved, ensuring the aesthetic and durability of my creations.
Macrame has given me an outlet, a meditation space, and enables me to slow, reflect, and be mindful. I hope the piece you choose for your home uplifts you as much as it did me.
