Nathan Vincent

Today, I am honored to present to you the work of Nathan Vincent.  Besides absolutely loving his art, Nathan is incredibly friendly, genuine and hilarious.  He works in the medium of crochet, sewing and applique to “explore gender mediums and the challenges that arise from straying from the prescribed norms.”

Nathan likes to take typically masculine objects and create them using a typically feminine medium.  Like the wall of crocheted guns shown above, which I think would be a great feature on a loft wall for a bachelor pad.

Nathan had a tough time picking out a “favorite piece.”  But he said that if he had to choose at the moment it would be the lion head that he crocheted.  I love all three animal heads above.  I think they would be especially fabulous in a little kids room or above a fireplace.

This men’s urinal is great, complete with a pink sanitizer inside.  It gave me a chuckle to see a urinal crocheted.  Nathan is working on a large installation piece, based on a locker room, to be shown at the Bellevue Museum in Seattle in February 2011.

Nathan’s created a series of doilies which are sold in select Jonathan Adler stores.  The doilies explore both the “dandy/gentlemen” movement and the more violent aspects of masculinity.

Nathan first learned to sew in his fourth grade home ec class in Michigan.  He learned to crochet around age ten, when his mother taught him granny squares and it took off from there.  His pieces take incredible patience and mastery of the art of crochet, sewing and applique and I am in awe of everything that he has created.  I encourage you to learn more about Nathan Vincent at his website here.
