Crocheted Hams and Hairdryers by Trevor Smith Evoke Memories of Mid-Century Domesticit
By day, Trevor Smith is a local council worker in Victoria, Australia. After hours, Smith creates replicas of elaborate meals and household appliances in crocheted wool.
Cheese platters, baked hams, toasters, and hair dryers are carefully constructed using foam armatures underneath the woolen exteriors.
Smith has had a lifelong interest in crafts, and shared with The Design Files, “my mother was a talented craftswoman and I was always shadowing her, wanting to be doing what she was doing.”
Smith earned a degree in Visual Arts as a sculpture major and also has been a curator of public art collections for the last 30 years.
