Let’s face it: knitting can sometimes get a bad wrap. Some think it’s the hobby of your grandma or exclusively reserved to hat and scarf making. Australian based artist Thomas C. Chung is helping to change that perception with his incredible hand knit sculptures. Chung knits everything from delightful little succulents to colorful creatures living in test tubes to framed baked goods. His crocheted work conveys a fantastic sense of wonder and awe–not to mention, his pieces are absolutely adorable no matter the subject. Chung is also known for his incredible installations such as “Please Come Back I’m Hiding” where he inhabited a cave in Mongolia with little knitted candies, tea pots and other treats as a bit of nod to the classic Grimm’s fairy tale Hansel and Gretel.
