doily art & deco

Found these images on what you make it (see below entry) by artist Lisa Solomon. She makes these installations using hand crocheted doilies and detailed drawings. They look so intricate. Pretty amazing.
Lisa’s work reminded me of some pieces we used for our Free People store fall display. The display team hand crocheted these enormous doilies from enormous yarn balls (you can see the yarn balls on the floor in the photo). The picture above is in the lobby of the FP home office.

Hey! Love your blog and your enthusiasm for the work you do. Wish I lived closer to one of your retail outlets so I could come and see your creativity firsthand. Your “enormous doilies” remind me of lovely, intricate spider webs!

Hi Amanda! I used to read your blog, but then it seemed like you stopped updating it, and now some typepad message comes up. What happened? Do you just use flickr now?
