Joana Vasconcelos is a Portuguese artist who creates really gorgeous handmade crochet covers for ordinary objects such as porcelain animals and statues.

Ms. Vasconcelos uses her art as a tool to advance her political beliefs. Craftstylish notes, “Her work is also about democratizing objects… Today, there are objects… that anyone can appreciate as being cool and trendy. There are objects that have changed status in this way. Status of people—of objects—changes; it isn’t static. Things that are banal today might belong in high culture tomorrow.”
