[really big] crafty things…Christien Meindertsma

Doc came across this wonderful picture in I.D. magazine of designer Christien Meindertsma knitting a panel for a rug. Doesn't that look like so much fun? I'm curious about those "needles"…did she make those? She must have. 

Christien's work is inspiring on many levels, and it makes me wish I could redo college art school all over again. I think she has found that rare intersection of craft, design and art, and her ability to execute bringing these three elements together is fascinating. Make sure you visit her site and peruse her other projects, like Pig. Do a google search and read some of her on-line interviews, too.

 More photos [from her site] for your viewing pleasure!

Now, I must convince Doc that D really needs one of these stools!
