Shauna Richardson’s Life-Size Animal Sculptures Created Using Crochet

Shauna Richardson lives and works in the UK. She has coined the term Crochetdermy to describe her process of hand crocheting large animal sculptures. A 19th century art form is employed and specimens are created from scratch rather than being stuffed and mounted. The work puts a handcrafted spin on the art of taxidermy and comments on our relationship with the natural world. Recently she participated in the Lionheart Project in which: “…three giant lions, crocheted by hand by the artist…travelled the UK  in a custom-built, mobile, glass case. These powerful sculptures reflect the region in both symbol and materials.”
