Sam’s work tells a story about tactility, colour and wearability. It’s fabricated using a range of yarns, threads and textile materials, some of Sam’s own making, and all of the work is crocheted. It engages our senses by using innovative reflective fabrics, fluffy wool and carefully sewn on beads and by including secret internal materials that surprise us when we handle the work; by it’s weight, movement or sound!

Sam wants his audience to discover all these qualities, to play with the work and to find new ways of combining individual pieces together in order to make a playful ornament that might only exist momentarily before the next one is created. / Lina Peterson.
