Terrifying Animal Skeletons Crocheted From String Inherited From Dead Family Members
Skeletons aren’t made of yarn – but Caitlin T. McCormack has made a lot of them. Her animal skeletons are crocheted from yarn and then solidified with glue. The works are intricate and look extremely fragile, just like old animal bones that have spent time in the ground. Her works come in several forms, from single skulls (in jars) to complete skeletons to skeleton “families.”
Caitlin T. McCormack graduated from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia in 2010 with a BFA in Illustration. The process of death, decay and rebuilding is important to her, and it is reflected in her art. More poignantly, McCormack’s crocheting materials and tools were inherited from her late grandmother, and the works help her embody the memories of her lost relatives.
