The Hyperbolic Crochet Coral Reef


The Hyperbolic Crochet Coral Reef exhibit in D.C. is coming to a close next week, still time to see this beauty! It's at the National History Museum.

An amazing display of nature and art coming together..


Words cannot describe the work done here. Hours and hours of crochet. With every type of fiber or non fiber you could imagine. Cassette tape, twist ties, every sort of yarn possible.



Color color color


These 'towers' were treasures. Fiber sculpture. Unbelievably beautiful.


All iridescent beads on this one


And a 'toxic' reef all made of plastic stuff, bottle tops, beer cans, netting, all types of trash.



Ends April 24th..
