This sculptural wall piece is made of red salt cedar, an invasive species, harvested from the desert in Santa Fe, NM. It is woven with round reed rattan and embellished with bone and clay beads and feathers.
Artist’s Statement I have a profound respect for traditional forms handed down through generations of fine craftsmen. Moving away from purely utilitarian vessels, I have progressed to larger, more sculptural forms that incorporate alternative materials and include other mediums. I have redefined the role of basketry, beyond the obvious craft, and expanded the definition of sculpture. --Bev Nagy
