Golden Valkyrie: “Handmade woollen crochet, industrial malha, tecidos, ornamentos, poliéster, cabos de aço”
I recently did a post about how Portuguese artist Joana Vasconcelos was going to be the first female to exhibit at O Palácio de Versalhes. I mentioned then that I couldn’t wait to see what crochet work she would exhibit in this grand space. Bem, the exhibit is up so I’ve got the answer. Here it is:
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.
Também, this is a similar style on two large lions.
This is a detail from Golden Valkyrie, mostrado no topo deste 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.
