Patti Quinn Hill
Color is what grabs me!! The medium of paper empowers me to explore and have fun with technique, structure, color and detail, while the curls give emphasis to texture and dimension. Working in paper has set my creative spirit free. My work is based on traditional structures, including Shaker, Nantucket and Native American influences. I combine these traditional techniques with a contemporary spin, giving my pieces their own voice, spirit and grace. As I shape a vessel, I try to achieve a feeling of lightness and movement having no straight lines. Basketmaking is meditative, relaxing, and has a rhythm that I find pleasurable.
