Copper wire bobbin lace

Posted in Bobbin Lace at 6:39 am by dianelaces

At the IOLI convention we saw a fantastic display of sculptural pieces made in copper by a lady named Lieve Jurger.  She was born and raised in Belgium and learned lacemaking there.  The large lace cube is featured in some of her other artwork in the book The Winged Tiger and the Lace Princess.

Here is the cube.  I think each side was at least 18 inches squared.  In the background you can also see a collar she designed and made.



Sorry for the size of the photos, but the piece is so impressive I wanted you to see it close up.  She is also working on a life-size carriage.  Only part of it is done; for scale know that each window is 20″ wide!


Absolutely awesome pieces!
