Marla Mallett

Marla Mallett is a fiber artist with B.F.A. and M.F.A. degrees from the University of Iowa. Mallett and her family moved in 1965 to Atlanta, where she taught fiber arts classes at the Atlanta University Center.
Mallett's inspiration for rug weaving springs from her extensive travels throughout the Middle East and Southeast Asia, as well as her studies in the progression of Oriental rugs and flat weave design. The owner of her own weaving studio, she has received commissions to make large wall hangings for public and private buildings. Featured in exhibitions from the city level to the national stage, her work has earned many awards.
Mallett's fiber works Black and Yellow Moves, Circuit, and Hooked Rug #26 are part of Georgia's State Art Collection.
