She said to Bored Panda . “My name is Linda Di Martino, I live in Abruzzo, Italy,” the artist promptly introduced herself. “I am a simple 59-year-old housewife who has always been passionate about crochet [and] lace. For 25 years we have always had an aquarium with fish at home … very demanding to clean and maintain. Unfortunately, in the spring I lost my husband,” the artist shared personal details. “So during the last summer the aquarium remained so, like my life, meaningless”. “The fish started to die, so one day looking at him I said, “when the last fish dies, I will do it all in crochet, I will leave a nice memory of me to the children, not a commitment to stay behind.” “On Christmas days the last fish was dead,” the woman told Bored Panda, “I started to empty it and clean everything, gravel, amphorae, stones, etc,” she explained.

“Having a supply of [leftover] yarn from other previous works, I was spoiled for choice,” Linda revealed. The woman used the internet to look for patterns for various sea animals and plants and if she couldn’t find something, she’d make a pattern herself. As she added more and more pieces, the aquarium came alive with colors. “Everything seemed real,” the artist explained.

When asked if she has a favorite piece in the mix, Linda was adamant. “There are no favorite pieces, they are all beautiful, colorful,” she said. “I am always amazed when I look at it, what I managed to achieve”.

“About 10 years [ago], I have entered the world of internet and [Facebook],” the artist discussed her online beginnings, “I met many crochet enthusiasts and shared many [works] and ideas”.
The woman also added that around 2012 she joined a group that would make various handicrafts as a hobby and would sell them at markets. She proudly told us about a project she’s been involved a year ago where she and a group of crocheters “covered the garbage pails of the driveway of [their] country”. The group behind the project is “L’ Accademia di Aracne” (The Academy of Arachne).

The artist also revealed that her relatives very really impressed with her work and can’t wait to come to see it once the Covid-19 restrictions are lifted. Turns out, many people also want to buy the piece of art, however, Linda is very clear about that notion: “everyone on the internet wants it, but the aquarium is not for sale, has no price and cannot be reproduced. “I’m sorry,” she said but encouraged people to try and put their own twist on her work. She shared the videos and patterns she used to create the many beautiful pieces in her aquarium.

The artist explained that it was last year when she started approaching the concept of crochet aquariums. “For the hobby markets last summer I created small aquariums,” Linda added, “at that point, the marine world was whipping in my head”. And since she had an empty aquarium at home, it only seemed like a matter of time since she filled it with beautiful creations.
