Who is Carmon Slater?
do you describe a man who is an artist, an interior designer, a home and
landscape designer, an art curator, and a naturalist? It's hard to pin him down
to a simple description. Carmon is an artist first and foremost, but his
abilities span more than one medium. To visit his home and studio is to get a
small glimpse of his abilities and interests. Every wall, every cupboard, every
nook and cranny is covered in art - from the floors to the ceilings. In fact,
the home itself is his original design.
Perched beneath large stone outcroppings, Carmon's home and studio is a
fascinating place to visit. The stepped landscape, rock gardens, decks and
patios are all works of art. Inside, the windows are covered with his magical
illuminated draperies, the floors are covered in original floor cloths, the
walls are covered with quilts both large and small and even the furniture is
upholstered with fabrics that he has created.
Carmon's studio is a feast for the eyes -
everywhere you look there are colorful fabrics, paints, photos, books, works in
progress and completed works.
Carmon offers his design services to both
individuals and corporate clients. Working from color swatches, paint chips,
color photographs and consultations, he creates pieces that are as unique as the
individuals who acquire them.
Carmon has been creating quilts for over
twenty-five years. His pieces have appeared in art shows throughout the country
and grace the walls of many homes, office buildings, universities and more. His
quilts can be both art for the wall and functional pieces for the bedroom.
Carmon's floor cloths are works of art on
canvas. Those who purchase them often hang them on the walls because they can't
imagine walking on them, yet they are quite durable. Floor cloths have made a
comeback in recent years and have a very contemporary look.
Drawing on his mastery with paint and canvas,
Carmon has developed a unique process for creating window coverings that turn
canvas into stained glass. As the sun illuminates the canvas from behind, the
layers disappear and reappear throughout the day.
