Summary "Fiber artists around the world have embraced crochet as an inventive medium like never before. Expanding on the creative possibilities, using sculpture, immense site-specific installations, performance and mixed media objects, they have used crochet techniques to explore feminine craft and heritage, to explore gender codes and to show the primal creative expression represented by crochet. In The Fine Art of Crochet, Gwen Blakley Kinsler looks at the art crochet movement from 1915 onward to the Crochet Revolution of the 1960s by profiling twenty of the most innovative practitioners working today. ... The works featured in this book represent the diverse styles, unusual shapes, and exquisite textures that characterize crocheted art today"--Page 4 of cover.
