Crochet as Art

I could spend several days on this subject, but I think I'll just introduce you to several different types of crochet art.
First there is sculptural. The Thread Artist Guild makes miniature animals that will melt your heart. "2009 Contest Winners"
"tiny teddy bears"
While the animals are crocheted, there are also sculptural pieces that apply crochet over another medium or object. This "crab" is crocheted lace over fabric. And the latest thing that I've seen is "lace coverings on river rocks".

Wearable art: Crocheted pieces are made into scarves, wraps, necklaces, or accessories "fashion designer"

Tapestry crochet is a technique that a crocheter can use for sculptural items, or wearables. "Carol Ventura" has a variety of projects including flat art, baskets and bowls, purses and bags
