An interest in collecting old ephemera introduced me to vintage card baskets. This domestic craft popular in the mid century made use of greeting cards cut into template patterns and stitched together. Before long I was using my hand pulled intaglio prints to form dimensional stitched contemporary vessels. "Siena" is one from my travel series where I explore the use of the printed surface to create contemporary forms with old world charm.
