As autumn leaves are falling here in beautiful Pennsylvania,
I want to pay homage to the season through the fascinating work of Susanna Bauer.
A small object found in nature, be it a smooth stone, an interesting
piece of driftwood, or in this case, a leaf, is her starting point.
She likes to bring attention to those tiny details that most folks don't even notice.
Using "crochet as a means of sculpture," she embraces the fragility
of leaves by embellishing them to a place of heightened beauty.
Imagine the patient focus of each skilled stitch!
She achieves fabulous results as she combines
fine delicate threads with waxy, veined leaves!
German-born Susanna Bauer now resides in England.
