Welcome to my new blog! I’m starting a new beginning in my work, with this, and a new website. My time to create new, ambitious Eternal Lace pieces has been limited during the last few years after having my two daughters (it turns out night time should be for sleeping, not sewing!). I am now really excited to have more time to develop more personal, sculptural pieces, and push the material in new ways.
‘For The Love Of Lace’ is a weekly series which looks at wonderful, unusual ways in which lace is used or inspires other artists and designers.
Here is a look at the covering of objects in crochet, by incredible artist Joana Vasconcelos. Classic sculptures and objects become both alien, yet familiar in appearance. Many more incredible pieces can be seen here http://www.joanavasconcelos.com/menu_en.aspx
