Crochet Art

My love for crochet art began with Clare Crespo's show of crochet food in 2000 at George's Gallery in Los Angeles. Clare is so inspiring on an insane amount of levels. More of her work is included below.

As a serial hobbyist, crochet is one of my favorite mediums! First taught to me by the talented Cal Patch when she had her shop in the LES, her lessons can be found online at Creative Bug. Here are some crochet artists that I've been inspired by recently. Like all Radder posts, links to their sites are clickable on their names. I have loads more of crochet inspiration on my Pinterest boards.

not crochet, but equally rad: Sarah's night sky space puddle:
Some of Sarah's recent work is currently on view at Little Lodge SF, a Gallery-Creative-Studio-Art Club House at 1306 12th Avenue at Irving Street in San Francisco.

I am a proud owner of a cupcake sculpture from Aaron Rose's Alleged Gallery and her cookbook, The Secret Life of Food. Crocheted food is only one sliver (like all of the artists included) of the amazingness that Clare does. See more of her projects: Hurray Today and Yummyfun Kooking.

For me, Ruth is by far one of the most inspiring contemporary artists – with an incredible history and artist/mother work ethic. Some great videos about Ruth here and here and larger images here. Many of the photos of Ruth and her family are by Imogene Cunnigham.

Also, this blog, is a treasure trove of crochet inspiration.
