Custom Work Elevates Carpet to an Art Form

Custom carpet art is made by taking carpet scraps and combining them to make unique works of art. Here's a little bit about how it's done and about one man, Russell Abbott of Salinas, California, who has made this his creative pursuit.

That's the case with Russell Abbott, a carpet and flooring layer by trade, who has taken elements of his day job and made it into a creative outlet.

Abbott is a fifth-generation resident of Salinas, California - it is his family that Abbott Street is named for - and his great-great-grandfather, C.S. Abbott, founded the Monterey-Salinas Railroad "so that the growers could get their produce to the ships," said Abbott. His great-grandfather, Frank Abbott, was an early mayor of Salinas.

The present-day Abbott discovered carpet art the way that many of us discover things these days - through the Internet.

Now he makes original designs of iconic movie stars, patriotic symbols, even superheroes, all by piecing together carpet.

"It's like anything else, it comes along with trial and error," said Abbott, who has been doing this for about four years.

After seeing other carpet art online, he took a weeklong course in Minneapolis. He's been learning on his own ever since.

Custom carpet art is not your everyday hobby. For one thing, it takes some space in which to work, some talent in carefully putting together the carpet pieces, and having the proper tools and materials.

Abbott, already being in the carpet business, had most of those ingredients on hand to begin with.

Typically, custom carpets have an inlaid design - that is, against the predominant field color, there are other carpet pieces of differing colors, piles or textures. The design can be further enhanced by beveling the edges of the pieces to create shade and shadow, and to bring the design into sharper relief.

In addition, designs can be cut into the carpet itself, in what is called bas relief; stitching can be added; and other materials can also be inlaid, such as fabric or leather, as desired. Even fiber optics can be put into the mix.

Most carpet art is either of a geometric pattern or a repeating pattern, such as leaves or flowers. However, Abbott's custom carpets, the size of large area rugs, are a bit different from this norm.

His designs often portray people, places and things.

Abbott starts the process by finding a picture that he likes. On his computer, he converts it to its simplest elements. Then he makes a pattern from that picture, and cuts out pieces according to the pattern, using a precision carpet-cutting tool.

Crafting his one-of-a-kind carpets is kind of like making a jigsaw puzzle - the pieces must be "as close to a perfect fit as possible," said Abbott. He assembles it, using an industrial-strength hot glue to keep everything in place, puts a felt backing on the carpet, and binds the edges.

He sometimes adds an additional flourish by sculpting the outlines of the image, in order to make it stand out and to give it depth and shadow. The sculpting is done with a shearing tool.

Like a tapestry, these carpets are really meant to be hung on a wall. In fact, Abbott's work was displayed last summer at Rollick's Internet Café in Oldtown Salinas as an art exhibit, titled "Called on the Carpet."

Abbott has also won several awards for these carpet creations at both the Salinas Valley and the Monterey County fairs. One carpet in particular, showing the Statue of Liberty, was a big hit last year- an admirer bought it while it was still hanging at the Monterey County Fair.

One of his most popular designs has been an image of Clint Eastwood from his "Dirty Harry" days, intricately rendered in five different shades of tan and brown. This one, Abbott said, is not for sale.

Others that have proved popular are images of Spider-Man, the Statue of Liberty, and American flags. Recently he created a harlequin figure and a pink rose sculpted on a gray background.

"I'm thinking about doing one of Arnold Schwarzenegger," said Abbott.

For these, Abbott uses scraps of carpet left over from jobs, with plush types most suited to the creative process.

He also will do custom carpet work for clients who have a particular design in mind - for instance, for one homeowner, he worked a grapevine pattern all around the edge of a dining room carpet.

But much of what he does is for his own interest.

"It's work, but it's also kind of fun," said Abbott. "It's something else to do besides worry about the economy."
