Louise Weaver's Needlepoint Take on Taxidermy

I adore the work of Australian Louise Weaver, and in particular, the all-red piece entitled ‘Taking a Chance on Love’. Her radical animal crochet sculptures even won her the Cicely and Colin Rigg Contemporary Design Award of $30,000.

These pieces are perilously close to kitsch but manage to pull it off with a more high fashion feel. The colour and texture of her works are amazing due to her special technique: she buys and pulls apart Issey Miyake for her sculptures. Stats for Woven 3D Animals Trending: Older & Chilly
