hilary anderson-barr’s knitted vessels

The work of UK designer Hilary Anderson-Barr has been featured in magazines like Elle Decoration and House & Garden. In producing her unique and quirky knitted vessels Hilary’s intention has been to raise the perception of knitting as a craft – usually functional and domestic – by associating it with the art of the potter, whose skills have from ancient times been much appreciated. The use of yarns in their natural state echoes the basic materials of the potter. Hilary doesn’t have a website but if you are interested in her work, you can contact her at andersonbarr@btinternet.com.

  • I am a fiber artist who uses yarn and beads to make small sculptures. Most of my crocheting and knitting has so far been in large wall hangings and smaller art scarves. I just bought some new yarn and had the idea to knit or crochet it into vessels so I googled and came up with this. It is wonderful work and I will contact Hillary about it.

  • I notice that you don’t have a category for fiber art. That would be very helpful to us who are engaged in that art. Much bead art is generally included in fiber art these days also.
