I’ve been making baskets and vessels since 2012, and am intrigued with using ancient techniques like twining to create modern forms.  

I love the concept of “sculptural basketry” which to me means how, when and where baskets become sculpture and vice versa. Often that includes asymmetry, open space, whimsy, bumpiness, curves and humor. 

The vessel called Women reminds me of our lumps and bumps, sizes and shapes, roundness, femininity and softness. Something to hold in our hands.

I work with paper- covered wire, waxed linen, leather, paint, cedar, paper, wire - and tend to use natural looking and feeling materials.
