Fungi

Fungi Waistcoat (Vest)

Fungi Waistcoat (Vest)


   

With Sylvia's organically textured fabrics the 'growths' are created by much scrumbling in the raised stitches, but the red fungi here are 'surface crochet', that is, worked onto the main fabric afterwards


Geometric

Geometric 1

Geometric 2

Geometric 3

 

Sylvia usually introduced some 'organic' element into her work, even when making strictly geometric, symmetrical and regular structures


Suede

Green Suede Waistcoat (Vest)

Blue Suede Waistcoat (Vest)


Bronze Suede Waistcoat (Vest)  

The idea of incorporating suede skin into our work was partly for the contrasting smooth surface and partly because we hoped it would speed up progress by making less to crochet. (It didn't, really … ha!)
