Crochetdermy

May 22, 2012

Shauna Richardson calls her work ‘Crochetdermy’. Shauna uses crochet to sculpt realistic life-size animals, combining themes such as objects, collecting, craft and realism and experiments with accessibility and audience.

With the Lionheart Project she won in 2008 the ‘Artists taking the lead’ prize within London 2012 Cultural Olympiad: starting from that moment and for the next two years, she has been creating the largest single-handed crochet sculpture in the world.

The finished piece is being housed in a mobile glass taxidermy style case and tour throughout 2012.
