This shop was just featured on the front page at etsy, so perhaps she doesn’t need any more publicity, but I just love the artfulness of these crochet creations.  They have such pleasing, organic shapes, that I just couldn’t resist writing this little note about them on my blog.  I especially appreciate the fact that the artist doesn’t feel the need to make her crochet into something useful.  Many of the creations in the shop are sculptures, art.  Crochet is familiar to most people as a domestic craft for making dishcloths and afghans and hats and such, but it also is a wonderful sculpture technique.  In crochet, it is very easy to make a three-dimensional shape, and the possibilities are endless, especially once you free yourself from the need for a pattern.
