Smile
H: 7 inches" | W: 9 inches" | D: 5 inches"

“Smile” combines pine needles and raffia with a manipulated gourd that I purchased from Shaney Gourds. I cut, drilled and finished the interior and exterior surfaces. A small basket closes the opening on the inside. Though most of my baskets are all pine needles, it is fun to experiment with gourds. This one does make me smile.

Creating pine needle and raffia baskets continues to be challenging, frustrating, meditative, and satisfying. I enjoy developing the design elements to incorporate structure with visual balance. The rhythm of the process is amazing.
