Taxing Crochetdermy


Shauna Richardson creates pieces of work that resemble taxidermy, a traditional craft seen in many quintessential British locations, but with a twist. When you look closer, you realise that the entire of the so-called animal is actually created from crochet and knit. The technical qualities are stunning and the ironic effect and message given by her work is magical.

Richardson has also been commissioned to produce two 30ft lions for the 2012 Olpmics in London. I'mlooking forward to seeing that one!!!
