I’ve been making baskets and vessels for the past eight years or so 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 white 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. I typically build from the ground up.
