Delicate Crocheted Leaf Sculptures By Susanna Bauer

ADVERTISEMENT

Delicate leaves and other natural objects decorated with fine crocheting are Susanna Bauer’s specialty. She was taught how to crochet as a small child in Germany, but was more interested in making tiny items instead of blankets and covers. These skills led Bauer into a career in model-making, but her love of nature drew her back.

“There is a fine balance in my work between fragility and strength,” Bauer writes on her website. “…the tenderness and tension in human connections, the transient yet enduring beauty of nature that can be found in the smallest detail, vulnerability and resilience that could be transferred to nature as a whole.”

Bauer now lives in Cornwall, England. An exhibition of her work will be on display at the Lemon Street Gallery through June 27th.

    I think they are absolutely beautiful...! And so unusual. I love it when people think outside the box & break away to do something totally new & breathtaking as these clever creations are. I can't imagine the amount of patience she must have to do such delicate work as those leaves must be so fragile <3 <3 <3
