Australia-native council worker Trevor Smith has an intriguing hobby. He loves to work with crocheted wool and creates unusual and impressive crochet items that you don’t get to see every day.
Smith draws inspiration for his artwork from his retro-domestic nostalgia and makes crochet replicas of household appliances and food like hair dryers, toasters, cakes, salads, and much more. Besides crochet, he also uses foam armatures and rubber in order to make sure his pieces get as close to the real thing as much as possible.
According to this talented artist, who holds a Visual Arts degree, his mother was the one responsible for his artistic tendencies.
“My mother was a talented craftswoman and I was always shadowing her, wanting to be doing what she was doing,” – explained Smith in a talk with The Design Files.
Smith’s works received a lot of attention on social media, and he recently decided to present some of his crafts in a joint exhibition with textile artist Kristen Fredericks. He is also planning on doing a solo show in the near future.
