I am primarily a metalsmith & fiber artist. However, this year I learned basketry as a technique that could be used to intertwine the two mediums, I most commonly work in.
I focused on exploring different ways to make Cat Head baskets. How changing the width of the spokes & weavers could change the whole shape of the basket.
My favorite is a piece that is an addition to an ever-growing collection of self-portraits. They were all made as a different interpretation of the same photograph. In this piece it is not just the photo that represents a self-portrait, every aspect does; the outside colors, a surprise of color on the inside & the lashing is recycled copper wire & aluminum wire, are all just a few of the details that show facets of me.
