Golden Valkyrie: “Handmade woollen crochet, tessuto a maglia industriale, Tessuti, Ornamenti, poliestere, cavi di acciaio”
I recently did a post about how Portuguese artist Joana Vasconcelos was going to be the first female to exhibit at Lo Château de Versailles. I mentioned then that I couldn’t wait to see what crochet work she would exhibit in this grand space. Bene, the exhibit is up so I’ve got the answer. Qui è:
Le Dauphin et La Dauphine. This is the classic crochet work that Vasconcelos seems to be known for - covering items in white or black doily-style crochet.
Allo stesso modo, this is a similar style on two large lions.
This is a detail from Golden Valkyrie, mostrato nella parte superiore di questo post.
Valquíria Enxoval – this one has only a bit of crochet in it and also incorporates many other crafts including embroidery, bobbin lace, tatting and even some pottery work
You can see more, larger and better photos over at Joana’s website.
