Really, it’s all about color for me. As an artist, I have experienced a re-awakening with my color pallet in basket making. Drawn to dark intense colors, I am challenged to focus on the brighter color palette when choosing fabrics. So part of the process in beginning a basket starts well before reaching the sewing machine. Fabric colors, most of the time, foretell the shape and size it will become.
As for the stone with a natural hole that adds the final touch and my signature to each basket, I find peace. Peace out on the river, peace when attaching it to a basket, peace in each piece
