The Knit Garden

This ongoing body of work features anatomically correct flowers and plants. Each piece is hand knit with different fibers and stitches to capture the unique textures and forms within the plant kingdom. The process of knitting, stitch by stitch, mimics the growth of a plant, cell by cell.
