Crochet Crochet lounge by Ruth Fore

“Crochet Crochet was created through a material exploration of aluminum wire. The initial idea was to create a stable structure using a material known to be soft and flexible. By experimenting with crocheted stitches a woven structure was created that could support a significant amount of weight. The piece evolved into a spherical form as aluminum loops were crocheted three-dimensionally in space transitioning from small to large gauges. The total wire amount ended with 3000 feet. The final product was anodized giving the overall structure more stability. Upon first glance Crochet Crochet appears to be composed of a chaotic mess of wire but when viewed in closer detail the organized woven structure is revealed.”

“I conceive inspiration from the processes in which organisms live, grow, and survive. By exploring the properties and possibilities of raw materials I generate physical ideas that visually play with form, structure, connection, texture, and color. Through the discovery of these stimulating methods and processes, I develop objectives that spawn meaningful creations that are both functional and sculptural.”
