Coral Reef

The Institute For Figuring Hyperbolic Crochet Coral Reef,
‘a woolly celebration of the intersection of higher geometry and feminine handicraft, and a testimony to the disappearing wonders of the marine world. Like its biological counterparts, the crochet reef grows slowly: each piece is hand-made and individually thought out. The quality of yarn, style of stitch and tightness of the crochet all affect the finished model so that each is as individual as a living organism.’

  1. These look so colourful, what a great use of crochet. This work is particularly poignant with the increase of corral bleaching and the risk of loosing natural treasures like the Great Barrier reef due to global warming in the comming years.
