Deer in Knits: Cozy Creations from Artist Rachel Denny

January 18th, 2011

Pin It

Winter always makes me think of ski lodges, roaring fires, pine trees, and knitwear. In that vein, artist Rachel Denny‘s work combines a classic ski lodge staple with yarny goodness for a look that’s unexpected, cozy, and perfect for winter decor.

Made of foam, wood, and yarn, these beautifully carved deer heads have a touch of whimsy. In addition, Rachel’s yarn-covered work extends beyond just deer, with rabbits made of angora yarn.

In the last year, we’ve seen artists decorate everything from cars and bicycles to driftwood and fences with yarn. What do you hope 2011 will bring from the world of fiber art? Leave a comment and let us know!
