john binet-fauvel’s recycled wire knits

John Binet-Fauvel has been exploring knitted sculptural forms since the 1980’s, experimenting with a variety of materials that led him to wire. He uses recycled wire from the inside of slot machines, electric motors, transformers and any other electrical wire this scrappy guy can find. Binet-Fauvel knits the sea creatures on frames that he designed, based on the Knitting Nancy spools that many of us used as children.

The tentacles on the octopus below were knitted using reclaimed copper wire from five washing machine motors. Probably the cleanest octopus you’ll ever find…
