Crochet As Art

This morning I was trying to come up with a topic for the newsletter and got side tracked by all the crochet I found on Google. One artist in particular caught my eye. Ruth Asawa was an amazing artist who created sculptures out of crocheted wire!

Ruth passed away last year at the age of 87 - I wish I could have met her! What an inspiring woman she was. I admit crocheting is probably the last thing I would think of when looking at wire. I hate working with rough yarn - maybe I need to rethink my own approach.




The fluid beauty of her sculptures is mesmerizing, These are just a few of her creations - to learn more about Ruth you can visit this site dedicated to her. I hope you are as inspired as I am.
