Since 1992 Lisa Curry Mair has created floorcloths, fireboards, table runners and other painted canvas items for homes throughout the United States and Canada.
This is a 5-minute movie created by Vermont Public TV in 2000, showing Lisa at work in her studio and how her floorcloths are made.
From a degree in Mathematics, to children’s book illustration, to research in historical aspects of early American life, all paths have led to a career in designing, crafting and painting functional canvas surfaces with a strong geometric element reminiscent of a bygone era.
All work is executed in the carriage-house wing of an 18th century farmhouse at the base of Ascutney Mountain in the Connecticut River Valley town of Weathersfield, Vermont. The studio, shop and showrooms are open by chance or appointment.
