Knitted Wire Sculptures

Reina Mia Brill creates strange but loveable knitted wire sculptures of all kinds of fantastic creatures. This one is titled “If You Keep Making Faces”. From the artist’s statement:
I begin with drawings that are translated into a wood skeleton, constructed to convey a posturing as well as offer gravitational support. A process of wrapping and layering with foil over the frame provides shape and density to the figures. They are then completely covered with a stuffed nylon skin. Using old-fashioned knitting machines, I create a flexible mesh wire fabric that is meticulously stitched onto the skin--layer by layer--over faces, horns, and even the crevices of toes until the essence of each creature breathes life.
