This website represents the sculptural weavings of Gloria McRoberts and her son Jim McRoberts. Their art work is conceived and produced in the Hang-Ups Studio located in Watertown, Tennessee.
Our fiber sculptures are hand woven from natural, undyed wool. By utilizing natural fibers as a sculpting medium, our goal is to offer our interpretation of the wonders of the universe with emphasis on the seasonal transformation of trees, the living sculptures. Nature has the unique ability to layer texture and tone to transform a landscape. Delicate rhythms and patterns form powerful sculptural scenes.
Each piece is unique, one-of-a-kind, and all designs are copyrighted. The concepts are our own ideas evolving over a combined 41 years. Our original technical process presents the viewer with deceptively gentle subject matter. Soft, richly layered landscapes of wool invite quiet contemplation, with appreciation of nature's linear artistry through the structural element of tree branches. We strive to present works of art that are visually dynamic, conceptually intriguing, and evoke feelings of peace and tranquility.
