Barnacles, baby! I don't know about you, but I am highly intrigued by these hand-crocheted and wood-mounted pieces from textile artist Rachel Hunnicutt. Taking traditional techniques and applying them to new forms is endlessly fascinating to me and Ms. Hunnicutt does it with a certain amount of flair!
Inspired by "organic, repeating shapes found in nature... barnacles, coral, fungus, clusters of seed pods", she creates intricate arrangements one pod at a time. A labor of love, no doubt! Check out more of her work right here.
