Houston, Texas-based artist Elaine Bradford uses crochet and sculpture to create fantastic art installations like the awesome piece pictured here. In 2011 Elaine created this permanent installation inside the Vinson Branch of the Houston Public Library. It consists of a life-size baby elephant and a flying gaggle of Canada Geese, each wearing colourful crocheted sweaters.
"Elaine’s color palette was inspired by the Houston Zoo’s tropical bird habitat. Chisel 3D assisted her vision by sculpting the 7 and a half-foot tall baby elephant. Elaine has paired with writer, J.D.Ho and illustrator, Rene Cruz, to create a book which explains the colorful story of the fascinating characters, entitled, Pachikadi and His Flying Friends. The book is available at the library for readers to check out.”
