UK Based Crochetdermy Artist Finishes 3 Year Long Project

CrochetA UK based crochetdermy arist and craftswoman spent three years and one needle preparing an impressive feat in time to be displayed at this year’s Cultural Olympiad. The artists, Shauna Richardson, created three crochet lions to recreate Richard the Lionheart’s three lions crest.

Shauna Richardson coined the term “crochetdermy” out of her body of works where she uses crochet to “sculpt realistic life-sized animals – uncanny taxidermy-like forms.” Her body of work is quite stunning, and absolutely worth checking out if you will be in London for this year’s Olympic Games.
