Hyperbolic Crochet Coral Reef @ Art Center

This weekend, we visited the prestigious Art Center College of Design nestled in the hills of Pasadena for a truly amazing exhibit using my favorite medium – yarn!! I learned about this fantastic show from my fellow fiber enthusiast and crocheter extraordinaire, Chantal, who also contributed pieces to the show! Congratulations Chantal – what an amazing project to be a part of! I was truly in heaven as I walked through the gallery looking at graceful shapes and color these artisans created. Here are just a few of the many photos I took. Enjoy!

a close up of the blue part:

this one was one of hubby’s favorites because of the movement/shape and the artistic effort. . . not to mention it was all crocheted using plastic bags! yes, my jaw is still on the floor . . .

  9. I enjoyed this immensely. Reminds me of the work of a famous glass-blower (whose name I am blocking on) from Seattle, who shapes and blows glass to look like exotic blossoms and sea creatures. Thanks for allowing the world to see your work.
