Crochet artworks description by the artist
In my work I use a traditional basic crochet technique taught to me at an early age by my gran. I work one knot at a time, from the inside out, row by row.
For example, in making the portraits I always begin in the middle with the eyes and work out from there until the piece is completed.
I work directly from photographs, using no sketches, graphs or computer imaging. each piece is instinctively composed, handmade, labour-intensive. nothing is planned ahead. I make it up as I go along. I spend a lot of time simply looking, unraveling, and reworking until I get it right, says artist Jo Hamilton.
