Close Up of Work in Progress – Giant Hand Knitted Snail Sculpture

Posted on: July 2, 2010

This is a close up of the spiral form I have trying to create with hundreds of hand knitted carrier bags – I have been using wire to create a structure underneath and I am continually changing the form – as the sculpture develops. I have started to use smaller needles to hand knit the horns and body of the snail and hope to keep you updated with this shortly. I am also beginning to collect further domestic waste materials such as plastic containers , bottles and cartons to use a potential sculpture materials – please comment.
