3D leaf artworks By Susanna Bauer
Artist Susanna Bauer works with found natural objects like leaves, wood and stone; incorporating them with crochet in unique and unconventional ways. Born in Germany, the artist studied landscape architecture at Munich’s Technische Universität and art at London’s Camberwell College of Art. She currently calls Cornwall, UK, home.
There is a fine balance in my work between fragility and strength; literally, when it comes to pulling a fine thread through a brittle leaf or thin dry piece of wood, but also in a wider context – the tenderness and tension in human connections, the transient yet enduring beauty of nature that can be found in the smallest detail, vulnerability and resilience that could be transferred to nature as a whole or the stories of individual beings.
