Beautiful sculptures of dried leaves crocheted with delicate patterns by Susanna Bauer

Eichstätt, Germany-born, Cornwall, UK-based artist Susanna Bauer fuses found dried leaves with crochet patterns to create unique and delicate sculptures that symbolize an intimate dialog with nature.

Found leaves are repaired, embellished and combined using handmade lace crochet – a laborious traditional technique relying on tension, set in direct relationship to the fragile natural material. The resulting forms are a meditation on the beauty and intricacy found in the natural world and a reflection of complex and tender relationships both within ourselves and our environment. There is a fine balance in my work between fragility and strength; literally, when it comes to pulling a fine thread through a brittle leaf or thin dry piece of wood, but also in a wider context – the tenderness and tension in human connections, the transient yet enduring beauty of nature that can be found in the smallest detail, vulnerability and resilience that could be transferred to nature as a whole or the stories of individual beings.
