KNITTED WALL OBJECT
Handknitted in polyester, cotton and wool, mounted on a masonite board
The pansy is a garden flower that comes in a great variety of colours and shapes. Textile artist Emma Hasselblad makes large-scale hand-knitted pansies in fluffy glittery yarn.
The knitted flowers are made up of repetitive methods, stitch after stitch, and of shapes that recur over and over again. They are knitted leaf by leaf and then linked together with crocheted stitches into a single entity. The repetitive construction of the pansies is thus found in both works and methods.
Each flower is knitted by hand without patterns or rules, instead the intuitive creation has a central role in the process.

The pansy flowers are knitted by hand and mounted on a wooden board so you easily can hang it on the wall.
It is a handmade object -please handle it with care and do not wash.
(b. 1991, Stockholm, Sweden) is a textile artist whose artistic practice evolves around knitting as the main technique. She explores knitting in relation to body, architecture, history and tradition. Emma knits three-dimensional sculptures, spatial designs, two-dimensional representational images, wearable and non-wearable garments. The choice of knitting as a practice is based on the techniques ability to examine shapes, silhouettes, different textures, colours and colour combinations. She explores the possibilities inherent in knitting: the flexible, stretchy material that the knitted fabric allows.
