Wunderkammer


There must be some affinity between the shapes and textures produced by crochet, and sealife. We've featured crocheted seacreatures before, and now in jpolka's work I've found a darling collection of teensy crocheted sealife, inspired by the specimens found in wunderkammer (or cabinets of curiosities). Gnarled barnacles, bright red corals, wee dangling octopodes; it's all beautifully organic and microcosmic.

Jpolka's designs can be seen at her blog, in her flickr galleries, or in her etsy store, where she sells patterns and finished objects.
