Eye of Providence pyramids

Crochet three-dimensional prisms

Trying a new sculptural shape – pyramids.

It’s fairly simple now that I can crochet uniform triangles. The eye is crocheted separately, and details like the iris flecks and pupil shine are hand sewn on.

The plan for these are a pair of crochet earrings for festivals or raves, they are bulky but light so don’t hurt my earlobes!

Part of a current ‘Illuminati art/ Turkish luck eye/ Eye of Providence‘ phase.

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.
