I’ve been making baskets and vessels since 2010 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. I work with paper-covered wire, waxed linen, leather, paint, cedar, paper, wire—and tend to use natural looking and feeling materials.
