louise Calder

"Louisa Calder, wife of sculptor Alexander Calder, has crocheted for most of her life. Her husband, one of the greatest sculptors of all time, was responsible for the first true revolution in the history of sculpture - by giving it a completely new dimension: movement. Louisa Calder with her work, published for the first time in this book, has added a new dimension to crochet - elevating it from the narrow confines of a craft in danger of becoming moribund to an art - an art of tremendous vitality, creativity & freedom."
