Coiled basket using Canary Island Pine Needles, Irish Waxed linen, with an amethyst crystal in the center augmented by glass beads. The color of the crystal determined the materials I choose to use.

I really enjoy using natural materials in my baskets, especially pine needles that I carefully collect and process myself. Taking basically yard waste and turning it into something (hopefully) much more beautiful satisfies my desire to honor these materials and bring pleasure to others. Color is the driving force in my selection of other materials to use. I don’t preplan shapes, they always evolve as I work.
