This knitted object is the start of a new group of works for me. In my artistic practice I work as a sculptor, and I wanted to bring it to my knitwear design. I have also been using brass fixtures and closures in the cloaks and capes I have been sewing, and they work quite brilliantly with knits don’t you think!?
You can really use any sort of fastener you’d like- but personally I like the brass!
