Description

“Crochet Cuties” is a collection of 3D soft sculpture. All works are created through the process of crochet. This project sparked through a class assignment in my 3D Forms in Fibers course. The assignment was to create crochet sculptures. I decided to create a fruit basket full an assortment of fruits and one citrus. Overtime this practice has turned into a small business of sorts where I have converted my life size crochet fruits into earrings and keychains. I find a lot of love in handmade art especially ones that can be shared, gifted and purchased. I also find great reward in the process of a laborious crafts. “Crochet cuties” has become a way for me to not continue my art practice, but to also find more doors in the world of textiles and the world of selling my artwork.
