A Talent for Tatting

Ágnes Herczeg

Fellow bloggers Alison and Don of Adventures in Wonderland sent me a link to this artist, and I was just blown away. These are the wonderful lace creations by fiber artist Ágnes Herczeg, who studied textile conservation at the Hungarian University of Fine Arts, where she also learned embroidery and lace making.

Her diminutive pieces are all created using plant-based fibers and dyes, and other natural items like seeds, wood, and coconut shells. Herczeg makes her wonderful scenes and portraits by employing traditional embroidery and pillow lace techniques. And don’t be fooled. Although her pieces are small, they are very time-consuming, with each little work taking days to complete.

You can follow this talented fiber artist on her website and on Facebook, Pinterest, and YouTube.

  9. I had a co-worker do tatting on her lunch break. That was the first time I’d ever seen or known of such work. It is fascinating to watch, but what she did were conventional pieces, like tablecloths and such. These are definitely works of art. Lovely!

  11. funny story about being thought a creeper! I love these – and your blog is so amazing, all the time. i’m always desperately trying to decrease the amount of unread e-mails I have, but sometime I don’t have time to look at your daily posts, and then they get backed up so far…right now I have about five of them up in my tabs, waiting for me to make the time to look at the cool videos or whatever it is that looked interesting. the oldest one I currently have opened is from may 2nd. at least that’s may 2nd from this year and not last!
