Stunning Crocheted Leaf Sculpture by Susanna Bauer
As a person without patience and far away from detail-oriented, I am always easily fascinated by those works needs a lot of attention and patience. However, Susanna Bauer (previous) not just amaze me but actually leave me a lot of exclamation marks in my head. I just can’t imagine how someone can create such delicacy works.
To work with dry and fragile leaves as a medium for crochet seems nearly impossible, but Bauer, the England-based artist somehow manages to do that and produce below miraculous little sculptures that fuse the natural world with the handmade. Treating fragile leaves like leather, Bauer finds a fine balance in my work between fragility and strength and magically stitch dry dead leaves introduce unusual patterns or create hybrid “assemblages” of multiple fragments.
