Brittle Skeletons Crocheted From Discarded Textiles By Caitlin McCormack

Philadelphia-based artist Caitlin McCormack continues to explore the decay and remains of once-living things in her intricate crochet work.

McCormick constructs her pieces using a labor intensive process that involves stiffening discarded textile materials with enamel paint to create brittle bone-like material. She then crochets fantastical intertwined skeletons of humans, birds, snakes, devils, and two-headed bats, which are displayed with stark black backdrops, glass cases, and lathed bases that reference old-fashioned displays for scientific specimens.
