This is a project in process.
My Flemish grandmother crocheted constantly and was known for making intricate lace table cloths. I wanted to use some of her patterns in my work, so I taught myself to crochet, slowly moving from bulky yarn to a fine thread. I've learned my grandmother's patterns and picked up a few others along the way. Now, I am working on dipping the crocheted lace in porcelain slip and firing away the original thread to create a porcelain skeleton of the lace. The project isn't complete, I'm not sure exactly where it will lead, but I am enjoying the process, family connections, and mistakes I am making. The images here are mostly to document the process and share with those who are interested.
