Dried Leaves Crocheted into Delicate Sculptures by Susanna Bauer

At the intersection of thread, leaves, and her steady hands, artist Susanna Bauer (previously here and here) produces miraculous little sculptures that fuse the natural world with the handmade. Her crocheted embellishments stitched into dry leaves introduce unusual patterns or create hybrid “assemblages” of multiple fragments, and at times she adds elements that appear almost naturally occurring.

Bauer says she creates the works as a tribute to nature but also as a mirror to ourselves. “I’m interested in the way we relate to each other, how we are connected and what moves us,” she shares, “what we hold close and what we send out, how our own inner tenderness can give us strength and how every being is beautiful in its individuality and in its dialog with others.”

All of the pieces seen here are part of a new solo exhibition titled Connections that opened today at
Le Salon Vert Gallery in Switzerland.
