Bloemenweedle - Ineke Kuiperij



Ineke Kuiperij's new book for 2017 is all about Flowers!



Bloemenweedle = Opulent Flowers



cover 2017 Ineke Kuperij's book Flowers



Ineke combines traditional tatting with free form tatting and wire work to create these lovely tatted flowers. She gives us patterns for roses, daffodils, tulips. anthurium, hydrangeas , anemones, Asiatic lilies and calla lilies. A lovely bouquet for any occasion.



Ineke Kuiperij is a master tatter from the Netherlands. Her talent for constructing 3-dimensional (3-d) objects from tatted lace is astounding. Her first book was a delightful nativity set done all in
delicate white thread. The figures were created from simple tatted lace strips formed into cones for bodies and capes with arms. Very interesting work.



The second book was a chess set complete with chess pieces and board. Again, simple tatted strips in cone shape to stand unaided on the board of simple tatted squares. Book three had a larger standing figure, Santa Claus, and a 3-d butterfly to be worked in thread or wire. She has had at least one book a year for over a decade. Each more charming than the last.

But I still look at her carousel creation with awe. Her 3-dimensional tatting is literally engineers with precision. The items are so good they could well be reproduced in steel.

The flowers are also reinforced with wire in strategic places. Tatting encapsulates the wire and allows the flower petals and leaves to be molded into a natural position. A close look at the sample diagram shows how easy they are read. The order of work is clearly marked and the double stitch count is included on the diagram. Compare the
diagram to the leaves of the anemone in the photo below.

The book is paper-bound and has 18 size A4 pages. The instructions and diagrams are in black and white but the cover shows a full color photo of each flower. The text is in Dutch but it has a multilingual chart of terms in the front. Tatting terms are given in Dutch, German and English and includes the abbreviations used.



The illustrations include 5 separate ones showing the meaning the numbers in different positions, i.e., ring of four picot four = shows the number 4 in the middle of the ring and a picot in the middle position. The same diagram with a darkened line on the right side of the ring indicates a split ring.



I look forward to tatting each of these lovely flowers.

Note: "This book was a gift to me from my long-time friend from the Netherlands, Riet."
