The Dodo in the Press

In 2009, my crochet rugs made from recycled t-shirt material were featured in Garth Johnson’s book 1000 Ideas for  Creative Reuse: Remake, Restyle, Recycle, Renew.

“Artists and crafters have always been recyclers, but for many, it has not only become a thrifty choice, it has become a moral imperative. 1000 Ideas for Creative Reuse contains a cutting edge collection of the most inventive work being made with re-used, upcycled, and already existing materials. The work in this book ranges from clever and humble personal accessories to unique and important large-scale works of art, including paper art, fashion, jewelry, housewares, interiors, and installations.”

My work has been featured several times in Portuguese magazines:

  • Casa Cláudia Ideias, Jan./Feb. 2009, felted hat, basket, scarf, gloves

  • Casa Cláudia Ideias, May/Jun. 2008, crochet doily rugs and other objects made from recycled t-shirt material
  • Casa Cláudia Ideias, Jan./Feb. 2008, felted picture frame, bags, rose brooches, rose necklace

And featured on Portuguese television.

  • Carmo Stichini, owner of the designer shop ‘Fermento’ (Lisbon), wearing the necklace Berries on RTP1
  • Necklace Berries on SIC Mulher
