ELIN@elinart - Textile Art

Elin Thomas makes art objects using hand-stitched textiles and crochet techniques. The work is produced from observational nature studies of mould, lichen and fungal formations.

“Crocheting is such an intense activity; it lends itself to miniaturisation and intricate detail. However, the challenge is to create an ‘organic’ looking work. Crochet is repetitive so promotes regularity and neatness, this has to be constantly disrupted to create anything remotely ‘natural’ looking. It’s at this point there is a creative tension between accuracy and aesthetic considerations. I hope the work is pleasurable by being both realistic and having the quality of the exquisitely handcrafted.”

ELINtm works are spread across the globe from Harvard to the Hebrides; featured in the San Francisco Museum of Craft, London's East End and Stornoway, capital of the wonderful Isle of Lewis, home of Harris Tweed.
