Crochet flowers, crochet vines, assorted WIPs compilation

 

The phrase “when all is said and done, more is said than done” in reference to Pinterest had been haunting me. I love practicality.

For the right people, it is much more than a collection of pretty pictures of cakes, nurseries and wedding dresses.

The following collection of images are from a range of Pinterest tutorials I have undertaken. I did not succeed 100% in all of them, but I got close enough to use the results. I also nailed a few! I will let you be the judge of which ones are which.

Originals are mostly in the left.

A quick show of what I have been up to over the last 6-8 weeks.

About kellymarietheartist

I am an artist who, up until recently, was living and exhibiting within Toowoomba and the greater Granite Belt district. I have since packed up and left Australia, and am currently living and working in England. My work engages the craft involved in handmaking within a contemporary art context. I am drawn to the physicality of repetitive textile processes, and this is transcribed though the tactile quality of my forms. In particular, processes such as crochet, sewing and rug making serve as a proxy for growth within my personal environment. Many of my works imitate situations in nature, and they form organically as I create each individual piece, each addition both a continuation and re-enforcement of its predecessors. I enjoy using recycled materials for many of my works. Using crochet and other textile techniques to do this is an important part of my work as it celebrates a tradition of craft that has historically been relegated to 'women's work', with all the negative connotations that entails.
