Seed Lace

I’m always on the lookout for knitting inspiration, but I especially love when I take a quick look at something, read it as knitting, then give it a second glance and see that it’s anything but.

Check out this stunning lacework made out of seeds – yes, seeds. Artist Rena Detrixheby made this gorgeous installation back in 2013 using only sheer cloth and seeds. The final result is both breathtaking and inspiring. Read the original article here.

Heirloom is a 2013 installation by artist Rena Detrixhe created from thousands of collected seeds that were applied in lace-like patterns to a large piece of sheer fabric. The resulting tablecloth makes it appear as if the seeds are hovering just above the surface. You can see much more of her environmental and textile-based artwork here.

    This is incredible, but she spent so much time and once it gets dirty or dusty it’s gone! I understand she’s an artist, but what a waste of time. This is beauiful!!
