Crocheted Olek wonder!

Good morning my LOVELY beautiful people!

How was your weekend? Hope you guys had a fun filled, happy and colorful time and managed to get some creative work done too :)

We had been to a mall in our city, Elements and there was a wonderful, faboulous and i am not finding the words to describe..huge and almost immposible crochet piece of work, rather art on display at the mall..

Can you guys imagine this set. It is entirely covered in crochet art. This is done by a lady known as Agata Oleksiak and known professionally as Crocheted Olek. She is a  Polish-born artist living in the US. You can read more about her amazing life and work HERE and find her website HERE. I so wish you guys could come and see this work with me. I was left speechless by her talent and dedication.

 Happiness is an inside job she says! And i agree 100%!
 Any takers for a lunch @ this wonderful crocheted table?
 Beautiful Christmas tree complete with lights and other decorations.
 Check out the details. Even the glasses and dinner ware is crocheted.

In 2009, she stated:
I think crochet, the way I create it, is a metaphor for the complexity and interconnectedness of our body and its systems and psychology. The connections are stronger as one fabric as opposed to separate strands, but, if you cut one, the whole thing will fall apart. Relationships are complex and greatly vary situation to situation. They are developmental journeys of growth, and transformation. Time passes, great distances are surpassed and the fabric which individuals are composed of compiles and unravels simultaneously. 

You can find the same below:
Isn't the philosophy beautiful :) Loved the way she has written about it!

 Another Christmas decoration in place. The tree is made of yarn balls and i wish i could own one such tree :)

Hope you guys had a fun time today in my world!

Lotsa love,
