crochet crush : Susanna Bauer's leaves

These stunning crochet leaves from British based artist Susanna Bauer. I love how delicate and fragile they are while having such strong structural forms, it is such a beautiful contrast...

"Most of my pieces are small sculptural objects often based on found natural materials. I like giving time to the inconspicuous things that surround us and often go unnoticed, paying attention to small details and the tactile quality of objects. Appropriating traditional craft techniques like weaving and crochet as a means of sculpture brings a contemplative element to the development of my work. I am interested in unusual combinations of materials, the experimentation with fragility and strength and the individual stories that evolve and shape themselves in the process of making."

Of course I am completely smitten with the delicacy of her crochet work in these pieces, as well as that of her pebbles and sticks, which are certainly worth a wee peek too... :)

A lovely day to you all,
Emma, x
