I have tangles of embroidery floss on my desk. I can barely bring myself to untangle and rewind it on bobbins, much less create something spectacular from it. Embroidery artist Ipnot manages to transform these bundles of thread into tiny sculptures that fit on two fingers. From tiny Japanese lobsters to zebras to strawberries, the subject matter runs the gamut—but each never ceases to impress me.
In addition to the before-and-after shots, Ipnot creates illusionist hoop art. A piece of pizza is lifted—cheese and all—from the hoop while they’ve perfectly captured what it looks like when ketchup is squirted onto a surface.
To achieve this level of detail, Ipnot uses the French knot. “As in the art of stipple painting,” they write, “I use my needle like a paintbrush and I stitch one knot at a time.”
