I’ve just come across the work of Nanna van Blaaderen, and it is beautiful. The “More or Less” collection combines hand knit and braiding techniques to produce work that represent the organic forms it was inspired by.
“Since I started exploring knitting techniques a world has
opened up for me. The potential of this discipline, to create textures,
structures and shapes in various materials, seems infinite.”

My work is currently focussed on knitted shape and form inspired by seashells. Hopefully my work will invoke similar reactions and feelings to the images shown here, more or less…
