Maryanne Moodie

Originally based in Melbourne, Maryanne now lives in Brooklyn with her family and creates stunning tapestries by hand. She’s only been weaving since 2010, Maryanne has built a devoted following who adore everything from her well-curated vintage collection to her dramatic custom-order wall hangings.Her pieces range from pastel blush tones of peach and pink to bright and bold primary hues—and everything in between. She also experiments with a wide variety of yarn gauges, making her weavings incredibly textural. After relocating from Melbourne, Australia, Maryanne started working out of a studio in New York, where she continues to make each piece by hand. 

She finds her inspirations by looking through art books and visiting galleries. She has a special affinity for textile artists who use color like Nick Cave and Ted Sabarse, and loves the crazy traditional and native fancy dress costumes caught on film by Phyllis Galembo.

The Nasīr al-Mulk Mosque

The Nasīr al-Mulk Mosque or Pink Mosque is a traditional mosque in Shiraz,Iran, located in Goade-e-Araban place (near the famous Shah Cheragh mosque). The mosque was built during the Qājār era, and is still in use under protection by Nasir al Mulk's Endowment Foundation. It was built by the order of Mirza Hasan Ali Nasir al Molk, one of the lords of the Qajar Dynasty, in 1876 and was finished in 1888. The designers were Muhammad Hasan-e-Memar and Muhammad Reza Kashi Paz-e-Shirazi.

The mosque extensively uses colored glass in its facade, and it displays other traditional elements such as panj kāseh-i (five concaves) in its design. It is also named in popular culture as Pink Mosque due to the usage of beautiful pink color tiles for its interior design.
