Fuzzy Pile is a series of three miniature rugs with dense block-printed patterning based on hybridized designs from historic Florentine and Venetian art and architecture–directly observed while living and working in Italy. The carpets also uses open work needlepoint techniques commonplace to many domestic textiles created during economically depressive periods in the United States–namely The Great Depression. The technique was also used in Italy as early as the 16th century. The result are miniature textiles that examines ornament, domestic labor, and record keeping as means to commemorate sites.
