I’ve been making baskets and vessels in recent years and am intrigued with using ancient techniques like twining and sewing 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 vessels called Pear Shaped and She Rock remind me of our lumps and bumps, sizes and shapes, roundness, femininity and softness. They are part of a series called Sisters, celebrating our connections and idiosyncrasies.
I work with paper- covered wire, waxed linen, leather, paint, cedar, paper, wire - and tend to use natural looking and feeling materials.
