Knit Meat by Stephanie Casper

Stephanie Casper Knit Meat sausage links Stephanie Casper Knit Meat t bone steakStephanie Casper Knit Meat roast chickenStephanie Casper Knit Meat fish headStephanie Casper Knit Meat hamStephanie Casper, an advertising and design student at the Pratt Institute in New York, has created these witty knitted meat sculptures, perfectly presented on grocery store styrofoam trays and plastic wrap. All the classic trappings of the butcher shop are there: sausage links, t-bone steak, roast chicken, fish head and ham on bone. What I like about these works is the simple delight in the visual, without bring too earnest or preachy. They also make me a bit nostalgic for the days I spent in high school wrapping meat at my part-time job in a wonderful little family grocery store.

UPDATE: Since I posted this, a few of my fantastic friends have responded with great links to other cheeky knitting and textile works. If you have any others, send them along and I’ll add them to the list (or better yet, write me a guest post about it!)
