If knitting woollens seems like a task to you, what Finnish artist Liisa Hietanen does can only be called work. A work of art that is!
Liisa’s knittings are not limited to woollens. In fact, they are not woollens at all! They are sculptures, and a wide variety of them. From a tiny watch to a fully grown person, spending a quiet day with their dog – all crafted in wool!
Liisa is a Visual Artist who graduated in Fine Arts from Tampere University of Applied Sciences, and is currently working in Hämeenkyrö, Finland. Her latest work is what she calls the Villagers series; which is basically a number of knitted sculptures crafted from her day-to-day interactions in her village. You can even spot her sculptures outside with the common folk. She places them in everyday situations to showcase the usual life of people.
The Knitted Innocence
These sculptures perfectly capture the innocence of people.
The Taste Of Wool
They might not taste delicious, but you will still savour these food sculptures.
Art Out Of Everyday Objects
These sculptures of everyday objects look so real that you can almost use them!
