“Gluttony” is part of series inspired by the Seven Deadly Sins that I thought about and have been working on during the past year of the Covid pandemic. There is a luxury of shapes, and abundance of swirls–it’s over the top.
I create sculptural baskets that take a standard material–reed–to new places. I encourage the reed go beyond the everyday and baskets beyond the useful. In this way the structures cross boundaries between art and craft. My original practice is based on and inspired by traditional Appalachian ribbed egg baskets and fish traps.
