Hyperbolic Guitar In My House

My home has been taken over by all things hyperbolic. The Irish Reef is under construction and last minute pieces are being crochet for certain places on the baskets – and here was I thinking I had completed my contributions… A good while back I challenged my husband, Dónal Donohoe, to give writing a piece […]

Progress Of The Irish Reef

The Reefers are hard at it again, constructing our wonderful hyperbolic crochet. The original Toxic Reef was curated by The Wertheims for their exhibition at The Smithsonian and we were left with no toxic reef at all. However, Irish crocheters rise to a challenge and simply just made another toxic reef. Irish crocheters, take a […]

The Tempo Is Hotting Up

We have posters, we have leaflets, we have a tight schedule for the coming week. We are Reefers and we have a Hyperbolic Crochet exhibition to set up. Not sure how much crochet will actually be done around here for the next week or so…

The Toxic Irish Reef – Take 2

Toxic hyperbolic crochet is about to peak very soon here as the exhibition of The Irish Reef is opening on Sunday 12th and the setting up of the reef will commence next weekend. In an effort to have a clear view of the way ahead which is best achieved by crochet methinks, I have combined […]

Hundreds-and-thousands Of Toxins

I’m delighted that we will have the opportunity to give our wonderful woolly wonder another whirl. However, we don’t have a Toxic Reef any more, as it was sent of with the Wertheims to […]

The Last Waltz

Yesterday we bid the Hyperbolic Crochet Coral Reef farewell as we packed the Irish People’s Reef away in boxes for it to be resurrected around the country, we hope.

Joie De Vivre

Wednesday June 2nd 2010 will be with me for a very long time. I spent time with the most amazing people and I was submerged in art and craft and good energy and knowledge and innovation. Plain and simple, joie de vivre at gourmet level! I went to see the Finals Exhibition at the IADT […]

The Fat Plait Bowl

When I completed The Fat Bowl made from Ingrid Wagner yarn I had this notion that the lovely chunky Álafoss Lopi from Ístex would be ideal for making more of these bowls. I set forth and got myself two balls of the good stuff and went to work with four strands of yarn. My intention […]
