Louise Weaver, fiberartist

Friday, May 28th, 2004

I just was referred to a web page showing the works of Louise Weaver, a fiberartist in Australia. Some of the pieces showing on this site are animal shapes (sometimes found objects, sometimes she made the underlying shape herself it seems), covered with very fine crocheting.

A piece I really love is this one:

I am Transforming an Antler into a Piece of Coral by Crocheting over its Entire Surface, 1995
cotton embroidery thread, hydrastone plaster
30 X 13 x 13 cm

The site gives her background (under Ideas, Inspirations and Influences) and has other in-depth information as well as good photos. I really enjoyed my visit to this site.
