Plain Jane Cabbage

A hooked rug designed and hooked by Jane M. Mason repeating a concept from a watercolor painting she created earlier. The technique shown in this rug is atypical for Jane. The concept creates a blended effect. Almost like an ombré, or shaded, effect as the tones in the shapes are blended using a range of wools dyed specifically for this rug. The wools were dyed by Deb Szwed and Jane worked closely with her on color planning for this rug. The design of this rug is by Jane and it was hooked by Jane.

One of the photos on this page shows the original cabbage patch in Hawaii that inspired the painting and this rug. (The painting is owned by a collector.) 

The title is tongue in cheek because as we can see there is nothing "plain" about the intense colors of red cabbage. And frequently when Jane has been introduced to people they say, "Ah, plain Jane, eh?" Everyone of us is complex—even something as mundane as a cabbage. 

The unevenness of the perimeter of the rug is one of the desired, primitive qualities of Jane'e hand-hooked rugs. They are handmade and show the "hand of the artist."

More About
Jane M. Mason

As a small child, I started taking art classes at Joslyn Museum in Omaha. Every Saturday morning I was at the museum for a class. As a five-year-old, I won my first art contest and distinctly remember the drawing I had created being used on the cover of the spring catalog for Joslyn Museum. My childlike enthusiasm for art and happiness creating art is in my DNA now. It’s part of every piece of art I create.
