own work - Botanic Knitting & wool vessels

I made a series of vessel with weeds and wool. I got inspired by the length of the hedge bindweeds that were invading my garden and experimented with weaving and knitting. This is the result of 2 summers Resultaat van 2 zomers. Geinspireerd door de lange draden van de hagewinde. Ik ben er mee gaan expirimenteren met breien en weven en gecombineerd met hand gevilte wollen vaasjes. Geskea Andriessen. facebook.com/degroeneuil www.geskea.com
