Check Out These Crazy Crocheted Skeletal Creatures
Caitlin T. McCormack is an artist that is also a very talented crocheter with a very distinct style that is very much her own.
The 27-year-old artist is based in Philadelphia. Her detailed crocheted sculptures are always created using white yarn. Once completed, she uses glue to shape her incredible creepy crocheted creatures with a structure that is similar to delicate bone tissue.
The act of stiffening intricately crocheted cotton string with glue produces material that is structurally similar to delicate bone tissue. The string implemented in this process can be viewed as the basic cellular unit of fabrication, and by utilizing media and practices inherited from my deceased relatives, I aim to generate emblems of my diminishing bloodline, embodied by each organism’s skeletal remains.
McCormack creates these interesting creatures using a reasonably thin string. The distinctive appearance of her pieces are achieved by not trying to hide away or trim the string ends. This approach gives her creations and interesting, if somewhat surreal look that is both interesting but also slightly bizarre.
She uses different methods of mounting her creations. Some of her crocheted creations are mounted of wooden mounts covered with velvet.
Others are displayed under glass bells or in glass jars. Bigger pieces are showcased in what looks like old, traditional museum display furniture.
