Hooking as art - Altoon Sultan

 Altoon Sultan is a prolific artist who has used hand dyed wool in her textile work, both as part of the surface (as above) and to cover the entire surface (as below).
These images were found on Tamar Zinn's blog, where you can get an overview of a selection of Sultan's work, or you can see more on Sultan's website - go here for the textiles.

She puts new textiles on her blog (altoonsultan.blogspot.com) - this is the most recent -

"Carpet World" was hooked by hand - the artist is Charley Freedman, who lives and works in New York and Nebraska. It's 6 feet in diameter.
