I’m looking for art to feature on my forthcoming newly
re-branded blog. I would like to open this call to my readers
since I have received such wonderful links to your art in the past
I will still be focusing on art that incorporates
thread, along with photography, collage and modern craft. Please
send links or recommendations – don’t be shy!

I love these animal creatures from South African artist Magda Van der Vloed.
Magda incorporates crochet granny squares, wire frame, telephone wire and image transfers
in their construction.
How can one resist this assortment!?

Love the knitted and crochet art of British artist Kate Jenkins. So clever
and inspiring – especially for this aspiring crochet enthusiast!
Rose-marie Crespin creates floral garlands and miniature birds using a knotting technique with
needle and thread. These miniature objects are truly amazing.

Embroidered and crocheted leaves by German artist Susanna Bauer.
“Appropriating traditional craft techniques like weaving and crochet
as a means of sculpture brings a contemplative element to the development
of my work. I am interested in unusual combinations of materials, the
experimentation with fragility and strength and the individual stories
that evolve and shape themselves in the process of making.”
