Artist Statement:
3D amuletic sculptural work comes from direct observation of contemporary basketry and lifelong appreciation of non-Western makers. Pieces emerge from testing limits of knotting with waxed linen and study of cross-cultural ritual and functional objects and years of formal training and teaching. The circular nature of construction mirrors spiritual concerns.
