Pretty in Pink : Knit Motorcycle by Theresa Honeywell


This is the most amazing pink thing i've seen this week

everything nice (knit motorcycle) by theresa honeywell
a full-size pink cozy for a motorcycle. isn't it cool? the artist theresa honeywell puts a lovely feminine touch to a super macho symbol with her knitwork. i would love to see a maserati or some italian sports car dressed in a pink knitted cozy. heheh. a couple close-up views of the bike:

she creates her lace tattoos using vintage tattoo imagery as a base.
* her tools: needle and thread.
* her method: sewing layers on layers in a circular, web-like pattern.
* time taken: each piece takes about 2 weeks to make.
"I am rendering a typically macho icon into something more delicate and softer by utilizing traditional materials."
