Rope Masks

In the spirit of things you’re simultaneously in love with and a little repulsed by, I was floored to come across these rope masks created by designer Bertjan Pot. The project came about after a failed attempt at stitching together a large rope carpet– the material started to bow and curve, making it unsuitable for the floor, but fascinating as a mask.

The inspiration for the pieces seems to run the gamut– from African sculpture, science fiction, Native American weaving, natural coral formations, architecture. Even a bit of a spa influence with the cucumber eyes mask.
