Lace Knitting and Wood Fusion

Check out this link for a novel and strikingly beautiful type of art created from lace knitting and pieces of wood.

As explained on the web site, Hungarian artist Ágnes Herczeg combines delicate lace art with the knotty branches of found wood to create scenes depicting the contemplative beauty of humanity. The intricate portraits showcase women as they recline, sleep, and gaze into an infinite abyss. Often, the wood is an anchor for their activities; it’s a place where the characters rest their bodies, or the floor on which they stand. Herczeg also uses it as a striking visual juxtaposition—the looseness of the lace and the solidity of the wood is at odds, but they are harmonious when linked together.
