BREAK(THROUGH) BASKETS

Basswood, Reed, Cane, Ink, Found Nylon Rope
2024, Ongoing


I crafted these woven vessels at Haystack Mountain School of Craft’s Open Studio Residency. They’re composed of dyed and handshaped basswood bases, reed, cane, ink and found fisherman’s rope. 

When I arrived to the residency, I knew I wanted to make baskets or woven vessels, I just didn’t know how and I didn’t bring enough materials. In my work, I like following an idea into its final form and drawing on aspects of place to inform my sculptures. 

With these works, I shaped wooden bowl bases to resemble the site’s magical, fluid, smooth geologic formations where we gathered to watch the sunset each night. The reed and cane were mostly donated to me, which says alot about the generous environment Haystack provides. And in town, I cut discarded black nylon rope off of a pier to add necessary texture that finished off the baskets.
