Crochet Sculpture

When I saw these crocheted bowls on, from Jamie (a mixed media artist) in Montana, I wanted to show you right away. These bowls are so delicate, especially lit from behind like this.
I suspect they are doileys soaked in starch and dried over a bowl of the desired shape. Like crocheted Christmas tree ornaments.
Jamie tells the history of doileys on her blog. She has great photos of Montana on her blog too.

My grandmother used to make things like that back in the 60s. She used sugar for the stiffening agent -- I even remember sneaking a lick or two... I'm amazed that she never had issues with any little crawling things...At least not that I remember.

How nice of you to post about my little lace bowls. What a nice surprise! They are so fun and easy to make. I have enjoyed visiting your blog as well! Thanks! Jamie V in MT
