Freeform Crochet Artist Karin Kempf
“Karin Kempf’s work brings together the exotic and the common by the manipulation of fabrics and the use of colour. Her main interest lies in investigating shape and texture and exploring various compositions within her designs.” (Cork Textiles Network)
Karin’s uses of color and the overall compositions of her works drew me in, so I thought I’d share her compositions and my related musings with you…
I think of these as Carmen Miranda earmuffs. They’re retro and modern at the same time, and the use of color is beautiful.
This tea cozy looks like a colorful teddy bear wearing a hat at first glance, with small eyes a big, blue nose, and Big, blue buttons down its front. Do you see it?
This one reminds me of the Sorting Hat from Harry Potter.
This one looks yummy enough to eat.
This tea cozy is called “Bird of Paradise.” It looks like a beautiful coral reef as well.
And finally, we come to what I see as a sun setting over deep blue water.
