KNITTED SCULPTURE

I stumbled across this on Boing-Boing Gadgets and was fascinated. It’s a piece of circular knitting fashioned from thin, clear plastic capillary tubing. The flow of colored water through the thing is mesmerizing. Although it looks a bit like nalbinding, it’s a twisted loop variant of frame knitting (the frame is upside down on the bottom, forming a pedestal for the sculpture).

Fascinating. Hats off to Mr. Bucket and the folk at Casual Profanity for the joy of this piece!

  1. Not as much fun as the sculpture is the news that there is now some yarn made from recycled plastic bottles mixed with acrylic. Wow. The Mind Boggles.
