Griffin Carrick


Interior designer and artist Griffin Carrick creates these quilled paper hangings from her home in Fayetteville, North Carolina. Each piece is made of quilled recycled card stock that Griffin hand cuts, rolls, and folds into three-dimensional sculptures. She says this about her incredible art:

“My love of quilling comes from the process of hand cutting, rolling, folding and configuring paper, transforming this two dimensional material into a three dimensional objects including paper tapestries and vessels. The textures, patterns and forms found in the built and natural environments as well as the traditional decorative arts of ceramics and textiles heavily influence my work. Ultimately, my practice is a constant experiment in exploring the three dimensional potential of paper and the unexpected use of this familiar material.”

You can follow the artist on her website, Facebook and Instagram.  Some of her pieces can be purchased in her Etsy shop.
