Intricate crocheted wire heart by Anne Mondro


Artist Anne Mondro uses narrow-gauged tinned copper wire and other materials to create works like If I can stop one heart from breaking.

She used 3D modeling software to determine how to crochet the wire in the form she wanted, saying:

This piece is very personal. I've been working with older adults with memory loss and their caregivers. It's so intense to be a caregiver. When you care for a loved one, the two of you become intertwined. You take on their vulnerabilities but also their strengths. As I thought about that relationship, it was important that these forms be tied together somehow.

Below are two pieces from her Adapt series.
