I loved doing an interview with wire crochet artist Deanna Gabiga for the October 2016 issue of the magazine. A portion of our discussion was excluded from the article to accommodate word count parameters. Read that exclusive excluded portion here today!
I first came across Betibettin on YouTube where I fell in love with his amigurumi crochet work. I particularly loved a tiny piece of micro amigurumi crafted inside of a tube but all of the work was eye-catching.
StudioTJOA is a fascinating design company that works on a lot of interesting high tech projects, such as a ThermalSwitch facade for building renovations, but they are committed to utilizing crafts of the past (including crochet). They use these “analog” techniques directly in their projects as well as abstractly using them to inform their designs.
I was going through crochet things on Vimeo recently (as you may have noticed from a few of the recent video-focused posts) and I spotted the Global Thinking Pod, an interactive art project by artist Viviane Le Courtois that combines crochet and community.
Yesterday I shared the crochet wire art by Suzane Beaubrun that I spotted when I stopped into City Art Gallery. While I was there, I saw a second artist working in this great medium: Sasha Merritt.
I recently stopped into the City Art gallery here in San Francisco and happily stumbled upon the beautiful crochet wire jewelry art by Suzane Beaubrun.
