In the “The Lace Project” I started with a tiny engraving of a lace pattern from Frederico de Vinciolo’s “A Book of Engraved Lace.” I then attempted to engrave the lace that would have been made from this pattern. To do so I used several lace making books and consulted a lace maker. In this project I intended to recreate lace using engraving. I was interested in the act of technical similitude as a form of analysis.
