pillow art

October 4, 2011

Many art collectors are familiar with the work of famed Louisiana folk artist Clementine Hunter (1887-1988).

One of her designs, discovered on Hunter’s recipe box, is featured on the 20-inch pillow ($175) at Louisiana Living in New Iberia.

One side of the pillow features the black bird motif painted by Hunter. The other side is Hunter’s distinctive signature: a backward, lowercase “c” (below) connected to a capital “H.”

Buy two pillows, and you won’t have to fret about which side to display. The pillow is made of oyster linen fabric with black welting.

If you like Hunter’s work, consider buying the six-inch ceramic bowls ($25 each).

The self-taught artist produced colorful, child-like memory paintings that captured Southern life (like cotton and pecan picking) on Melrose Plantation, where she lived. The bowls represent some of the memories, including cotton and pecan picking.
