theStudio Artist of the Week…

 

Susanna Bauer, Sculptural Artist, Cornwall

The embroidery and crocheted leaves, rocks, and sticks by Susanna Bauer have completely caught our eye this week. Her talent is simple and delicate.

Bauer is driven by a great love of making and working with her hands and over the years she has acquired a broad knowledge of materials and techniques. Most of her pieces are small sculptural objects often based on found natural materials. Appropriating traditional craft techniques like weaving and crochet as a means of sculpture brings a contemplative element to the development of her work. She is interested in unusual combinations of materials, the experimentation with fragility and strength and the individual stories that evolve and shape themselves in the process of making.

Lucky for us we get to experience her work. For more of her sculptural objects visit her on the web.
